What’s On: Jul 24 – 30


Veronica Mars on Streaming, Australian CS:GO Championships, the American Express Open Air Cinema in Brisbane, TeslaFest outside of Sydney and Nerdmania at the Shepparton Showgrounds. And this is a quiet week. Here is your guide to everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

This week in Streaming we really want to tell you about the new season of Veronica Mars returning this Saturday and exclusively on STAN. But then SDCC happened and the US Hulu service moved it up a week so it’s on STAN right now!

Also in Streaming this week is the Australian CS:GO Championships but if you are in Melbourne you can head to the LIDO Cinemas for a special session to watch it live! Watch Australia’s top teams have at it while you relax in your cinema seating with your food and drink.

UPDATE – Amazon Prime has Garth Ennis’ The Boys live-action releasing globally on Friday. If you are a fan of shows like Powers but wish they were more gritty you should watch it this weekend.

2In Cinemas

No big new releases this week but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a reason to head to the cinemas. If you are in Brisbane the American Express Open Air Cinema is in the Botanic Gardens right in the CBD for a short season. This week you can watch John Wick 3, Aladdin and/or Dark Phoenix in the lavish gardens.

3Stuff To Go Do

First up don’t forget that Monday is International Chicken Wing Day. There are no shortage of awesome places to kick back for some Barcade related fun but check out our Australian Directory if you want to discover a new place near you.

Get out of the City this weekend with TelsaFest happening outside of Sydney. This is a 2-day event with all things Steampunk with tons of Makers, Exhibitions, Costumes and Workshops in the name of Tesla.

Or if you are closer to Shepparton check out Nerdmania back for 2019! You know we love cons outside the capital cities and this one has a ton happening with it being the largest Rural Pop Culture Con in Victoria. Plus it has some Melbourne Food Trucks incoming (yum).
