Each year we make improvements to enhance your experience of St.George OpenAir. This year we’re focused on sustainability, and reducing queues. So what does this mean for your night out with us?


This year we're focused on reducing queue times in the restaurant and we're welcoming a new partner Hey You. Hey You will allow you to order ahead from your phone once you’ve arrived at the cinema and will send you a notification when it’s time to pick up your meal from Chiswick at OpenAir.

Beat the queue at the restaurant


A more comfortable grandstand for everyone!

Thanks to St.George Bank, you can look forward to a more comfortable, padded grandstand seat in 2019. To eliminate the need for cushions, we have upgraded the entire grandstand with padded seating which is great for your posterior and great for the environment too.

In the past, you may have taken the opportunity to hire a St.George Bank cushion at the cinema, but unfortunately, many of these found their way to landfill. This year, St.George have helped us all out by investing in new padded seats for everyone.

Of course if you’re after a little extra padding you’re welcome to BYO cushion from home!


Washable, multi-use cups at the bar.

$2 deposit repaid when cup is returned.

Having a drink with friends before the film is a big part of the OpenAir experience and the perfect way to spend a summer evening. In the past however, this has meant lots of single-use plastic cups! (More than 50,000 each season!)

This year we’ve invested in a range of high quality, washable, multi use plastic glassware to cut right back on single-use plastic at the event.

When you purchase a drink at the bar, you will be charged a $2 deposit on top of the drink price that will be repaid to you when you return the cup. We will ensure that there are plenty of return points around the event, including roving cup-collectors who can reimburse you on the spot and minimise any impact on your experience.


Why the $2 deposit?

Research shows that a deposit on the cup itself helps to ensure less cups accidentally end up in the bin or going home with you after the film. Since we are trying to cut down on single-use plastic, we’re seeking your help to ensure all of our cups stay at the event to be washed and used again and again and again...
