The outdoor cinema will be opening especially for this event as the official season for outdoor cinemas will not yet have commenced. This will be a great opportunity to enjoy a beautiful Perth spring night out under the stars and in the wonderful bush-land setting!
The movie which will be screening is ODDBALL, and this is a family movie made in 2015.
ODDBALL is sometimes called "Oddball and the Penguins" and was directed by Stuart McDonald.
It stars the inimitable and much loved humorous Shane Jacobson (better known for his role in Kenny - the dunny man), Coco Jack Gillies, Sarah Snook and Alan Tudyk.
The movie is based on a true story - an eccentric chicken farmer, with the help of his granddaughter, trains his mischievous dog, Oddball, to protect a penguin sanctuary from fox attacks in an attempt to reunite his family and save their seaside.
Numbat females can have up to four babies at one time.
Perth Zoo has been breeding Numbats for release into the wild since 1986, and until 2013, 176 Numbats had been provided by the Zoo to the Department of Environment and Conservation for release into protected habitats. You can see more about these cute Numbats at this site.
The Cinema opens at 6:30 pm and the movie commences at 8 pm. There will also be activities for the children and these start at 5.45 pm.
There will also be a raffle that will be drawn during interval, and there will be some great prizes including the following:
1st Prize - Perth Zoo mini group pass
2nd Prize - Scitech mini group pass
3rd Prize - Double pass to Kookaburra Cinema
You can buy your tickets on the day at the door, and the Kookaburra Cinema will be donating part of the ticket sales to "Project Numbat", so that researchers and carers can continue to fund conservation activities and raise awareness of these small cute animals.
You will also have the chance to meet the Association's mascot, Nurla and to buy some exclusive Numbat merchandise.
There is a snack bar provided, however, you could bring your own BYO picnic if you prefer.
So, mark the date in your diary and help to celebrate "World Numbat Day"!
Note: There are no EFTPOS or ATM facilities at the Kookaburra Cinema, so please bring cash for your tickets and food/drinks.
