Thursday 6 October, 2016.

Newcastle Permanent has just released its 2016/17 Cinema Under the Stars Program and it is set to be the best season yet! As Australia’s largest free regional outdoor cinema program, Newcastle Permanent’s Cinema Under the Stars will visit 16 regional locations between November and February, bringing a night of free entertainment to thousands of families across Northern and Central NSW. 

Cinema Under the Stars events appeal to all ages with great live music and fun activities for kids including circus workshops and small-sided football from 5.30pm. Once the sun goes down the big screen will light up and families can sit back and relax with free popcorn while they enjoy the feature family-friendly movie.  

Newcastle Permanent CEO Terry Millett said, “We understand how much regional communities across NSW look forward to our Cinema Under the Stars events, and as a customer-owned organisation it is just one of the many ways we’re giving back to communities that support us. 

“This year we’re excited to bring Cinema Under the Stars to two new locations Dubbo and Taree for the first time and can’t wait to get back to the other communities in regional NSW which already know and love these events. Last year, Cinema Under the Stars events attracted around 40,000 keen moviegoers and we are hoping to reach 50,000 this year. ” 

“We encourage everyone to come along to their local free Cinema Under the Stars event this season. The fun will kick off at 5.30pm and families can to settle in and relax with a picnic and experience the magical atmosphere of watching a popular family movie in the great outdoors,” Mr Millett said.
