Don't forget your lilo
Looking for an unusual way to cool off with the kids this summer? Why not head along to one of these popular Saturday night "dive in movies"? Ferny Hills Pool and Albany Creek Leisure Centre are hosting several fun family nights where you float around the pool, under the stars watching a movie on the big screen.
There will be a huge outdoor barbecue, selling burgers and a sausage sizzle at each event, with the first fifty tickets sold receiving a free inflatable pool ring. At $35 for a family of four, this would also make for an inexpensive family night out.
Madagascar 3 @ Ferny Hills Pool, 71 Ferny Way, Saturday, January 11th, 2014
Lie back in the cool water and watch the crazy antics of your favourite Madagascar characters, Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller) and Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock) as they join the circus in a zany attempt to escape Monaco's evil animal control, Chantel Dubois and become Europe's Most Wanted animals.
Monsters University @ Albany Creek Leisure Centre, Saturday, January, 18th, 2014 5pm - 9pm:
Join the lovable Monsters, Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) as they head for college and are eventually expelled. What will they do next? Maybe you could float around the pool as you find out? Sounds like a great way to spend a hot summer night to me - just don't forget your lilo.
