Bring the family to the free Movie in the Park Elimbah event on October 8 at Morris Park.
It’s part of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s bumper community events program for 2022.
The film Sonic The Hedgehog will be screened at the event, which is on from 5-8pm. The movie is expected to start about 6pm.
Movie snacks will be available for sale before the movie and Elimbah P&C will be cooking a sausage sizzle.
There’s also free facepainting before the movie.
Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Cr Tony Latter (Div 12) says he is excited for some high-speed action to spice up the quiet country nights in Elimbah.
“For the kids Sonic is action-packed entertainment and for parents it’s a trip down memory lane to the days of Sega,” Cr Latter says.
“Speaking of nostalgia, Sonic’s nemesis is none other than Jim Carrey, guaranteeing 10/10 entertainment for the whole family.
“Movie in the Park is a fantastic initiative to bring the growing community of Elimbah together under the stars in Morris Park.
“So, mark Saturday, October 8 in your calendar and head down with your family, friends, and picnic blankets for a free night of local entertainment.”
Big program of events
Mayor Peter Flannery says this is one of dozens of events being held this financial year, in direct response to calls from locals for more festivals and activities in their suburbs and neighbourhoods.
“We’ve heard you and we’re acting to deliver more great local events close to home, so it’s close to home and easy for local families,” he says.
“In the era of Netflix, I love the idea of locals heading out and coming together for a movie. It’s the closest this generation will get to a drive-in, I think.”
Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism Founder and CEO Shane Newcombe says smaller community events at local venues are the perfect way to bring residents together in their own neighbourhoods.
“You can grab the kids, some chairs and blankets and walk to these events with your neighbours and friends,” Mr Newcombe says.
