Newcastle Permanent’s Cinema Under the Stars is back and is set to be better than ever!

Heading to 11 stunning locations throughout regional NSW, the family friendly event has returned after an almost two-year hiatus, offering all the ingredients for the perfect summer night out - live music from local artists, games for kids, roving characters from the movie for that photo moment, football activities and a blockbuster movie under the stars.

Entry is free and movie-goers are encouraged to bring along their rugs and picnics or you can purchase food and non-alcoholic drinks at the event.

Newcastle Permanent CEO Bernadette Inglis is delighted regional communities can once again get together and enjoy Australia’s largest Australia’s largest free regional outdoor cinema program.

"We’re absolutely thrilled to have our iconic Cinema Under the Stars event locked in to return in 2022," Bernadette said.

“The last two years have been really challenging, with major weather events and ongoing lockdowns and restrictions impacting our ability to connect in person with everyone as much as we would have liked.

“But, with the near year comes new opportunity, and as a proud customer-owned organisation, we’re delighted to be back, delivering 11 events throughout regional New South Wales this summer and giving back to our local communities,” she said.

Family favourites including Space Jam: A New Legacy (PG), Tom and Jerry (G) as well as Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (G), will be screening this season.

Our Cinema Under the Stars event is just one of the ways that we’re supporting the good stuff in our community. Be sure to mark your calendars, gather your friends and families and pack your picnic for a beautiful evening under the stars!
