Popularity of outdoor cinema event for families grows
IT was a smaller turnout than usual due to families going away over the long weekend, but that didn't stop the fun at the fourth CQ Starlight Cinema event on Saturday night.
Word of mouth about the free event is slowly spreading, with many first-timers turning up to see what the night is all about.
"One of my work colleagues told me about it on Wednesday," said Sharon Brooks, who was there with Trevor and their son Troy, 11.
"We just thought it was a great family night for all families."
The choice of movie, The Croods, was a popular one among the outdoor cinema goers.
The freedom of the outdoors had the children joining in the movie, collectively mimicking Belt the sloth every time the character let out his distinctive doomsday cry.
The atmosphere of the event is a major drawcard.
"We would have come along no matter what the movie was," Charlie Gillingham said.
