Social. What does the big screen plus popcorn spell? Movie night!

Local children are invited to free movie nights held monthly in Smithton.

Organised by members of the Smithton Christian Fellowship, the movie nights are open to all members of the community with a focus on primary school aged children.

Movies screened on previous nights have been Sing, Oddball and The Lego Movie, all well received.

One of the organisers, Helene Tuxworth says the children have loved watching the movies.

“The first one we had there were 15 kids, we’re up over 40 now.

“We have parents and grandparents come along.

It’s not for the parents to drop the kids off and go, if they want to stay, they’re welcome to.

“The kids usually decide which movies they want, what they want to see next.”

On Friday July 7, children are invited to watch The Good Dinosaur at the Seven Up Youth Centre, 124-126 Nelson Street, Smithton. Follow the adventures of Arlo and Spot as they embark on a journey to find Arlo’s family.

The evenings begin at 7pm and finish at 9pm, with an intermission during the movie with popcorn and refreshments provided.

There is adult supervision and no passouts.

Further screenings will be made public in the Chronicle’s This Week in Circular Head and school newsletters.
