Cinema Under the Stars Season 12 returns in early January kicking things off in Nelson Bay on the 11th.

Monday, 7 January, 2019.

The second half of the season will feature eleven events in total, including Dubbo and Mudgee events which were rescheduled due to the November dust storm blanketing the Central West. 

Our flagship event in King Edward Park takes place on Saturday 12 January and it’s expected to draw large crowds with the popular film, The Greatest Showman lighting up the big screen. 

Due to the size of the event, there will be road closures. In an effort to minimise congestion and assist cinema goers, there will be a FREE shuttle bus service for our Newcastle event. This service will run on Saturday 12 January from 4.00pm until 11.59pm and make continuous trips between Hunter Parking and Storage (also known as Bolton Street Car Parking Station) and Bar Beach Carpark; making drop offs and pick-ups at King Edward Park. 

The following roads will be closed to non-resident vehicles on Saturday 12 January between:

  • 4:30pm to 11pm:  
    Wolfe St (Ordnance St to Reserve Rd)
  • 4:30pm to 11pm:  
    The Terrace (Reserve Rd/Bingle St)
    York Drive (Reserve Rd)

Residents will be able to gain access via Reserve Road however may be asked to show proof of residence, i.e. Drivers Licence. 

From 9am to 10.30pm: no vehicle access to King Edward Park via York Drive. 

The event will kick off at 5.30pm with a fantastic line-up of exciting entertainment and activities before the movie screens at sundown. 

After our Newcastle event, we will head down the road to Maitland and Central Coast the following weekend. The program then tracks north to visit Grafton and Coffs Harbour, followed by a stop in the New England region for Tamworth and Armidale in mid-February. 

We’ll be in Speers Point Park, Lake Macquarie for the first time on Saturday 16 February screening Paddington 2, and to conclude our 12th season we will circle back to the Central West for rescheduled events Dubbo and Mudgee. 

Joining us again for a huge second half of the season is talented artist, Laura Zarb to warm up the crowds. Circus in Education and football (soccer) activities will be available for the kids to try their hand at. 

It’s set to be a huge couple of months of cinema fun, so pack your picnic, gather your tribe and get yourself to a Cinema Under the Stars event near you!
