Festival celebrates opening
THE highly-anticipated grand opening of the Paragon Theatre will be an event not to miss.
In celebration of the theatre’s new beginnings, an Inaugural Paragon Film Festival will be held to coincide with the Childers Festival.
To kick off the festival, Paragon Theatre owners Nigel and Merissa Craft will host an 18+ event from 7pm on Friday, July 25.
Tickets include canapés, the Best of 2013 International Short Films, followed by fun and dancing along to the tunes of local band Slyru.
Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the event.
Organisers will also host a family session on Saturday, July 26, from 10am. This event will feature numerous animated movies, so bring your picnic rugs, prams, and let your kids run loose.
A comedy session will follow the family event at 1pm. The theatre will also host retro markets from Saturday afternoon into the night and all day Sunday.
Come along and check out the newly-renovated theatre to help Merissa and Nigel celebrate their hard work.
