Film nights prove to be a suc­cess

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

WEST­ERN Downs fam­i­lies are look­ing for­ward to the next com­mu­nity movie night, hosted by West­ern Downs Re­gional Coun­cil.

Pop­u­lar movie Fer­di­nand was en­joyed by nearly a thou­sand peo­ple in com­mu­ni­ties across the West­ern Downs.

Spokesper­son for Com­mu­nity and Cul­tural De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil­lor Kaye Maguire said the ini­tia­tive was a roar­ing suc­cess, and could lead to more movie nights in the fu­ture.

“Coun­cil was thrilled to see so many fam­i­lies from all of our towns em­brace the West­ern Downs re­gional movie nights,” she said.

“Al­most 1000 peo­ple across eight towns came out in all weather con­di­tions, and it was amaz­ing to hear some of our small com­mu­ni­ties in­clud­ing Jandowae and Tara had more than 120 and 150 at­ten­dees re­spec­tively. There is noth­ing bet­ter than be­ing able to spend time with loved ones.

“These events re­quire strong part­ner­ships with our com­mu­nity groups, who added to the movie night suc­cess.”

She said the suc­cess opened the pos­si­bil­ity of more events.
