Another fabulous Bundaberg drive-in movie weekend is coming up, featuring Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Oddball.

Following the success of recent drive-in movie nights, Bundaberg Regional Council will again entertain film buffs at the Bundaberg Recreation Precinct.

Oddball will screen on Friday, 25 September and Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert on Saturday, 26 September.

Council events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the movies, which this time had an Australian theme, were popular choices for audiences young and old.

“We know from the success of our drive-in movie nights that this is a great way for families and friends to enjoy a safe night out,” Cr Learmonth said.

“On Friday we’ll have a popular and heart-warming family film with Oddball and adults can get ready for side-splitting laughter when we screen Priscilla the following night.”

Starry Nights Outdoor Movies will erect its giant inflatable movie screen at the Recreational Precinct, with moviegoers able to access the audio through an FM frequency on their car radios.

“We’ve had to get creative to organise COVID safe events and it’s been wonderful to see how the community has embraced the traditional drive-in movie once again.”

Tickets will be $25 per vehicle, with a maximum of five people.

Food and drink packs will once again be available thanks to the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre and can be ordered at the time of ticket purchase.

“Don’t delay in securing your ticket,” Cr Learmonth said.

“Our limit is 100 vehicles per session and, given the increasing popularity, we’re sure tickets will sell out quite quickly.”

Both movies will screen at 6.30pm.

Tickets are on sale now through the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre, call 4130 4100 or go online here.
