THE new 20-hour RV park played host to the first Movie Un­der the Stars last Fri­day night.

With the threat of rain and and pass­ing storm clouds, the small crowd filled the tiny park for the screen­ing of the chil­dren’s classic Pen­guins of Mada­gas­car.

With the lo­cal sup­port from Ro­tary, guests were treated to hot chips, pop­corn and dag­wood dogs on a stick as they rolled out their blan­kets and cracked open the esky.

Fam­i­lies con­tin­ued to roll in af­ter the movie had started with up­set chil­dren miss­ing the start of the movie.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cils, Di­vi­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tive Cr Bill Trevor said Coun­cil strongly sup­port fam­ily units across the re­gion and the free movies pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for all res­i­dents to en­joy the glo­ri­ous spring evenings and com­mu­nity in­ter­ac­tion.

Cr Judy Peters, Cul­tural and Com­mu­nity Ser­vices port­fo­lio spokesper­son, said the re­cent pleas­ant evenings were a great op­por­tu­nity to pack a rug, fold out chairs, sit back and re­lax and en­joy the en­ter­tain­ment.

The fea­ture film was a fam­ily favourite, Pen­guins of Mada­gas­car. Adults and chil­dren en­joyed the film with many kids burn­ing off ex­tra en­ergy run­ning around the park with friends.

A poll taken on the night by Town and Coun­try at the event sug­gests the kids are keen for more movies to be held in Childers dur­ing the hol­i­days.

With sport­ing events and pre­sen­ta­tions being held in Childers on the same night, crowd num­bers were lower than ex­pected.
