Jumanji and Footloose feature at drive-in

Popping up at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on 28 and 29 August, the drive-in will be screening a double banger of Jumanji on Friday, 28 August, and Footloose on Saturday, 29 August.

Kick off your Sunday shoes, jump in the car and enjoy Footloose at this month’s drive-in movies.

Or, if you don’t feel like dancing, then catch the original Jumanji featuring the legendary late Robin Williams.

Popping up at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct, the drive-in will be screening a double banger of Jumanji on Friday, 28 August, and Footloose on Saturday, 29 August.

Council has partnered with Bundaberg Broadcasters to create the ultimate physical distancing solution to catching a flick.

Council’s arts, culture and events portfolio spokesperson, Cr John Learmonth, said the previous event proved the popularity of drive-in movies still exists.

“They were real wonderlands for families, particularly back in the 50s and 60s, but our first drive-in movie event proved that they still are,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Drive-in movies are much more than a fun, retro way to see movies – it’s one of the safest ways for communities to gather and Starry Nights Outdoor Movies will be erecting a 10 metre by 6.5 metre inflatable movie screen at the Recreational Precinct.

“People will be able to access the sound through an FM frequency on their car radios, so they won’t even have to leave their cars if they don’t need to.

“And while they can’t sit outside their vehicles, they are welcome to reverse in and set up in the trays of utes, vans or hatchbacks.”

The Moncrieff Entertainment Centre is organising packs of movie treats with local products. These will be available to be pre-purchased only when purchasing your tickets.

Tickets for the August movies are now on sale. Purchase one ticket per carload (up to five people).
