Starlit movies for local charities
MURDOCH University will welcome local moviegoers to its Perth campus again this summer, with the return of Telethon Community Cinemas on December 13 for an extended season. Blockbusters including Star is Born, Small Foot, First Man, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, Robin Hood, The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, Bohemian Rhapsody, and more, will be screened at a new location on the corner of South Street and Murdoch Drive.
As in previous years, guests can bring a picnic,
Aor choose from food options on site including pizza, popcorn, ice cream and a fully licensed bar.
Organiser Ken Gibbons said the cinemas would offer some new ticketing options this year, including non-expiring gift vouchers just in time for Christmas, and smartphone ticketing.
However, he said it was the friendly community atmosphere and great movie choices that kept families coming back each year.
“Telethon Community Cinemas is Perth’s familyfriendly affordable outdoor cinema, proudly donating all its profits to charities improving the quality of life of kids with disabilities or serious health concerns,” he said.
In its 18-year history, Telethon Community Cinemas has raised more than $8.33 million for children’s charities including Horse Power Swan Valley, MakeA-Wish Foundation, Edmund Rice Camps, Rebound, and Telethon.
This year, funds will also be donated to two 12 Buckets and the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre.
