McCaskie Park will officially be the home of the newest permanent outdoor cinema in Brisbane.

Despite the era of online movie streaming, Brisbanites love for the outdoors remains strong. Being a part of the state’s “Sun Corridor” and its sub-tropical climate, going out to catch the latest flick at your local movie cinema is still a thing.

Talks about its development started going around early this year and now, the Brisbane City Council has finally given it the go-signal.

As part of the council’s initiative to get more people at the city’s public spaces, this new development will definitely see more people out, socialising, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors the city has to offer. The best part? It’s FREE and it’s a permanent thing!

The development proposal includes a 2.7 metre x 5.4. metre screen, a small stage area, and a speaker set up. The council plans to to make it operational on weekdays and weeknights. They will also allow the area to be used by organisations and individuals.

This proposal will also highlight the natural amenity and heritage values of the park, which is a local heritage place for recreational and sporting activities. The development will retain all mature fig trees on site, existing view-lines within the park, and the existing settings of the park.

Construction is expected to start this year.
