Everyone loves chippies. Tbh, they’re the ultimate summer snack as you dip them in tomato sauce while watching the sun go down. And you know what folks love even more? FREE chippies. There’s not much better on God’s green earth than biting into that crispy, salty stick of deliciousness. And when you don’t have to hand over your battered and bruised debit card in exchange? Priceless.
The team at Oporto also know that free chips (well, free food) is what makes life worth living.
That’s why they’re slinging free snacks alongside your favourite flicks at the Oporto Summer Cinema Club.
‘Where can I shove free chicken and prego sauce into my mouth?’ I hear you ask.
Well, if you’re based in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne, the Portuguese chickens have blessed you, my friend. At a series of beloved local cinemas across the Eastern Seaboard, Oporto are inviting Australians to share in a night of summer nostalgia (Double Bondi Burger in hand).
On Saturday the 11th of March, New Farm Cinema in Brisvegas will be hosting Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at 4pm, Mean Girls at 6pm and Grease at 8pm.
In Sydney, on Friday the 17th of March, the Ritz Cinemas in Randwick will screen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at 6pm, Mean Girls at 7pm and Grease at 9pm.
And finally, Melbournites will be able to catch some flicks at Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn, on Saturday the 25th of March. The cinema will be screening Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at 4pm, Mean Girls at 6pm and Grease at 8pm.
As previously mentioned, the kind folks at slow-fast food chain Oporto will be organising the catering with free chips, Spicy Chicken Bolas, Double Bondi and vegan burgers galore. There’ll also be live entertainment and DJs (not during the film, don’t worry cinephiles). And because it’s the cinema and Oporto aren’t heathens, there’ll be popcorn for each movie-goer.
While this event is FREE (!!) to attend, you do need to register to get involved and spots will go as fast as a burger at the office lunch rush so get in quick sticks. You can register here.
Ngl, this almost sounds too good to be true? But it is in fact happening so count your lucky stars. See ya there, spring chickens.
