Cinema Peroni’s al fresco experience is back for another year and we have your chance to win

Bringing its popular outdoor cinema back for its fourth year in a row, the Italian premium beer, Peroni, is delighting lovers of the silver screen once again, with a marriage of divine food, enthralling film and specially curated drinks — and this year’s selection might just be the best offering yet.

Over the course of three nights, Britomart’s Takutai Square will play host to the elegant open-air cinema, a cosy little set-up lined with nautical deck chairs. Once seated and draped in complimentary blankets, guests will be transported to Italy via the award-winning film Perfetti Sconosciuti (Perfect Strangers) — expertly chosen by the Rialto Film Channel, who have partnered with Peroni for the occasion. Directed by Álex de la Iglesia, the humorous drama follows seven close friends at a dinner party, which turns tumultuous after they decide to play a game requiring everyone to put their phones on the table. All incoming calls and text messages are divulged to the group in an attempt to prove that none of them have anything to hide — but inevitably proving the opposite.

Ensuring that all cinema-goers receive a true taste of Italian romance from the get-go, authentic aperitivo and refreshing Peroni Limone cocktails will be served on arrival, with bottles of crisp Peroni Nastro Azzurro (in a stunning, brand-new bottle design) available throughout the evening. What’s more, the Executive Chef of Italian-inspired restaurant Amano, Andrew Hanson, will be serving up a delectable three-course feast to celebrate the big screen in true al fresco fashion.

In honour of Cinema Peroni’s grand return, we’re giving two lucky Denizens the chance to win a double pass each for the evening of Friday the 5th of April. For those interested in indulging in an Italian extravaganza, complete with a delicious three-course dinner, click here for entry. In bocca al lupo! (Good luck!).
