Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Starry Nights Outdoor Movies are doing an impressive job of bringing the 'memorable' back to 2020 with some nostalgic entertainment for movie lovers, showcasing an awesome selection of cult classic screenings from yesteryear, at the Eumundi Drive-In. In the past few months, movie buffs have been given the opportunity to 'escape' with a splendid selection of grand ol' classics.

Based on a Stephen King novella, The Shawshank Redemption - Rated MA/Age 15 plus tells the story of a law-abiding banker, Andy Dufresne, (Tim Robbins) who is framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover. Over the next two decades, Dufresne serves his sentence at the Shawshank prison, putting his accounting skills to work for the warden. During his long stretch in prison, Andy Dufresne comes to be admired by the other inmates, including an older prisoner, named Red (Morgan Freeman) for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.
