Experience the magic of movies under the stars at Elliot Springs

 

 

Cinema under the stars has been POSTPONED 💔 - new date to be early in the new year...

 

There’s nothing better than spending an evening under the stars with your favourite film and friends. Round up the troops, including your furry friends, and sit back for our first drive-in movie event to enjoy a screening of the family favourite, Jumanji – Welcome to the Jungle.

With the weather warming up, our moonlight movie event will be the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and disconnect from our busy lives. Roll up in your wheels or set up a picnic rug in front of the big screen from 4.30pm.

Lendlease and PUFT Events are excited to bring the Oscar-worthy fun to our doorstep at Elliot Springs. As the sun sets and the stars come out, enjoy live music from 5pm accompanied by a tasty bite from our visiting food trucks.

“We’re excited about bringing the old-school drive-in experience with this screening of a classic flick that the whole family can enjoy,” said PUFT Manager Jono Pearson.

“This is the perfect opportunity for a family night out where everyone will be off their phones, a date night with a twist, or even a catch up with friends we haven’t seen for a while.

“We’re so excited that Elliot Springs has the same vision as PUFT Events, to bring some retro family fun to the people of Townsville. This includes bringing along your furry friends, as dogs are welcome too.”

All drive-in ticket sales from the evening will go towards Townsville based not-for-profit organisation, Unlock the Lachs. Lendlease have previously worked with Cayley Downey from the organisation to develop Townsville’s first all-abilities, Livvi’s Place playground at Wadda Mooli Park.

“Lendlease, and in particular Elliot Springs, have been a wonderful support of Unlock the Lachs and our local inclusive community,” said Cayley.

“They have worked closely with us to ensure that their outdoor living spaces’ intent is to welcome all abilities. Wadda Mooli Park is truly everything a magical play space should be, and Townsville is lucky to have it in our region.

Enriching our community connection by bringing our residents together, the drive-in movie event is a great excuse to have a night off cooking, eat out with family, meet friends, and even make new ones. We can’t wait to see you there!
