Free Starlight Cinema returns to St George

A hit with families, the popular Starlight Cinema series is set to return, with Georges River Council once again hosting film screenings in a range of locations.

Every Saturday throughout March there will be outdoor cinema events held at Olds Park, HV Evatt Park, Carss Bush Park, Woodville Park and Kogarah Park.

This line-up of family-friendly events presents a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to get out in their local area and enjoy the outdoors in the warmth of early autumn.

The sing-along version of The Greatest Showman will be the first film to be screened on March 2 at Olds Park.

On the back of the stage production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory currently playing at the Capitol Theatre, the original version of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will be screened on March 9 at HV Evatt Park.

Then prepare yourself for a totally Shakespearean weekend at Carss Bush Park with Bard on the Beach on Friday, March 15, presenting a performance of The Life and Death of King John, followed on Saturday, March 16 with a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s classic, Romeo and Juliet.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the feature for Saturday, March 23 at Woodville Park.

People are encouraged to pack a picnic dinner, bring a rug or low fold-out chairs, and enjoy a meal under the stars while enjoying an entertaining film. There will be ice-cream, fairy floss and popcorn available.

On Saturday, March 30, you’ll have to bundle yourself, your friends and family into the car to catch the all-time family favourite, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, which will be screening at a drive-in event!
