Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Open Air Movie Season Has Arrived

Film lovers are in for a treat this year with an action-packed movie schedule announced for the open-air cinema located at the Airlie Beach Foreshore.

Bring your picnic blanket down and enjoy some bare-foot film-viewing while watching the sunset over the bay and the twinkling lights of the night sky appear.

This is the perfect activity for families, and it is completely cost-free with each event provided by the Whitsunday Regional Council.

Bring snacks along or treat yourselves to a takeaway dinner from a nearby venue or even one of the food vans that regularly set up on-site.

This Friday night two movies will be showing, providing back-to-back entertainment for the whole family will enjoy.

First-up is Barnyard, The Original Party Animals, which tells the story of Otis the bull (Kevin James) who, like the other animals in the barn, enjoys singing and playing while the farmer is away.

The carefree bovine, however, must soon find the courage to be a leader when, unexpectedly, he finds himself in a position of great responsibility.

Next-up is 101 Dalmatians, the much-loved Disney classic that follows the story two London dalmatians and villainess, Cruella De Vil, who wants to buy all the dalmatian puppies she can find in order to turn them into fur coats.

Open air movies will be held every second Friday of the month throughout the year and a full schedule is available from the Whitsunday Regional Council website.

In the meantime, here is the schedule for the next few months:

February 10 – How To Train Your Dragon

March 10 – Sing

April 14 – Shark Tale and Oddball

May 12 – Babe and The Sapphires
