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.
