A Christmas Gift from Bob will be screening at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre.

A Christmas classic, a festive movie for a cause and one for family fun – the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre has it all this holiday season.

The screening of A Christmas Gift From Bob will be a fundraiser, with proceeds going towards the Bundaberg Housing and Homelessness Forum's bid to secure a Sleepbus for Bundaberg.

Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said it was great for the community to be able to enjoy an afternoon at the movies, while raising funds for a much-needed cause.

“The Christmas movies on offer at the Moncrieff provide the perfect opportunity for families to support important local initiatives such as the Sleepbus project,” Cr Learmonth said.

“I look forward to seeing everyone enjoying these events and all the others that make up this year’s fantastic Christmas program.”

Tickets for the Moncrieff Christmas movies are available here.

Christmas movies at the Moncrieff include:

White Christmas

If you’ve been dreaming of a White Christmas these Moncrieff film screenings are for you!

Singers Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) join sister act Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy Haynes (Vera-Ellen) to perform a Christmas show in rural Vermont.

There, they run into General Waverly (Dean Jagger), the boys' commander in World War II, who, they learn, is having financial difficulties; his quaint country inn is failing.

So what's the foursome to do but plan a yuletide miracle: a fun-filled musical extravaganza that's sure to put Waverly and his business in the black!

During the performance, Betty and Bob become engaged, and Judy and Phil decide to go through with their own engagement.

As everyone sings “White Christmas”, a thick snowfall at last blankets Vermont.

Date: 9 December
Time: 10.30am and 6.30pm
Cost: $12
Location: Moncrieff Entertainment Centre

Encanto

Enjoy a free movie at the Moncrieff to get the whole family into the festive season spirit!

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto.

The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz).

But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.

“Encanto” features original songs by Emmy®, GRAMMY® and Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”).
