Easter miracle for Nebine community
THE Nebine Community Centre has been given a new lease on life with Care Outreach and Suncoast Christian College completing the Outdoor Picture Theatre by Easter.
The open air theatre was originally created in 1953 by three men who wanted a social meeting space for community members.
“The Outdoor Picture Theatre has been at the Nebine Centre since 1953 and was created by Richard Boyer, Tom Smith and Walter White, but over the years it has deteriorated and needed a lot of work,” Nebine Community Centre secretary Jacque Blacket-Spence said.
“Our area has been affected by the drought badly in recent years so social days have been dwindling over the past eight years.”
Care Outreach and the Suncoast Christian College arrived in the Nebine on March 24 and completed the seating on April 1, which has been a two-year project.
“This project has taken about two years. Firstly they did the big renovation on the big screen and this year they have done all of the seating,” Ms Blacket-Spence said.
“We are so excited to be able to have the movie nights again and they have done the most amazing job.”
The opening night of the outdoor picture theatre is set to screen on May 5, showcasing two movies, a children’s film and an adult film, and community barbecue.
