I am a retired English teacher who has retired from teaching but not from life, which I intend to live to the full. With all my hobbies, I'm busier now than ever with my art groups, small business and gardening.
If I see anything with the word free, I'm interested. When I saw the flyer from the City of Kwinana, about their free outdoor movies, I was rapt. What could be more romantic than watching a movie under the stars on a balmy summer evening.

It can work out expensive if you want to take the whole family to the movies. With tickets for 2 adults and 2 children, plus popcorn and a drink for all, the cost can be prohibitive. This is FREE. You won't need to add to your credit card or get a personal loan.
The first movie is on 29th January, 2018, Red Dog True Blue. The movie is rated PG and is a follow on from the popular Red Dog movie. The other movie is on 24th February, 2018, Inside Out. Inside Out is also rated Pg and is an animated cartoon.
Movie goers can arrive at 6 pm for pre-movie, entertainment with the movie starting at 7:30 pm.
All you'll need to bring, apart from yourselves, is a picnic meal and blanket. If you want to bring a chair, there is a space set aside. Most importantly don't forget the mosquito repellent.
A night under the stars
