I'm a freelance writer who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy finding new things to see and do in the beautiful area that I live in.
Drive-in movies can be quite the novelty, especially considering how the theatres that host them are now few and far between. While they used to be quite common back in the late 1950s and early 1960s, you would be hard-pressed to find many running today, besides a selected few located around Victoria.
That is why, when somebody decides to run a drive-in movie, even just for one night, it's always a unique opportunity to try something different. The Clifton Springs Primary School Parents' Club are offering you that opportunity. On Friday 16 November, they will be hosting their annual Drive-In fundraising night, featuring a popular family film, and promising an entertaining evening for the whole clan.
Clifton Springs Primary School will be hosting the event
This is your chance to watch Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted in a totally different atmosphere from the usual cinema or home entertainment environment - giving kids the chance to experience the film in an alternative and somewhat nostalgic format.
Of course, the movie experience wouldn't be complete without tasty nibbles and sweet drinks, and the Parents' Club are more than happy to provide those for a nominal fee. With hot dogs at only $2 each, and dim sims, hot jam donuts, popcorn, ice cream, slushies and coffee available, there will be something to satisfy everybody's taste buds as they enjoy the film. There will also be a raffle held on the night, where you have the chance to win from an assortment of prizes.
The movie will start at dusk, and tickets cost $25 per car. They can be purchased from the Clifton Springs Primary School office. It looks to be an entertaining and interesting night for all who attend, so why not join in the fun, pack your car, and get ready for a unique movie experience within the local community?
