Edmundi, Australia: Stars Appear for Outdoor Film Event
The red carpet may be missing, but all the stars will be there.
Eumundi's first outdoor cinema night,В Flicks in the Sticks, will be launched at the Eumundi Showgrounds tonight with a showing of the box-office hit, The Polar Express.
The event is the brainchild of locals Steve Beardsley and Trent Harvison, who wanted to create an event that would embrace the outdoor lifestyle and bring families and the community together.
We hope Flicks in the Sticks will become a monthly event that unites the community socially and presents great fundraising opportunities for local groups, Mr Beardsley said.
The showground is such a wonderful facility, but it's under-utilised. This is a great chance to use it and bring the community together.
Mr Beardsley and his family moved to Eumundi from the United Kingdom two years ago, where holding an outdoor cinema was nigh impossible .
He said the region's great weather had been an inspiration in setting up the event.
It's a family thing, Mr Beardsley said.
We want people to head out with a picnic rug and an esky and have a great time.
We're so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place and Flicks in the Sticks is about embracing that.
The Polar Express will screen at 7pm, with gates opening at 6pm.
Cost is $5. There will be an on-site candy bar as well as a sausage sizzle, which will raise funds for the Eumundi State School.
