En­joy movie night and glass of wine

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

Mitchel­ton Win­ery is open­ing up its slopes for a star­lit view­ing of Christ­mas clas­sic Home Alone.

The first out­door cin­ema ses­sion of the sea­son will be held on De­cem­ber 23 and lo­cals are in­vited to join in the fes­tive spirit by gath­er­ing for an old fam­ily favourite.

‘‘Bring your own pic­nic rug, and set­tle with a glass of wine by the river, un­der the stars at Mitchel­ton,’’ PR man­ager El­iz­a­beth Sat­tler said.

The win­ery had the bright idea for the out­door cin­ema as a way to en­gage with the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

‘‘I’m not from here but I’m from the coun­try and sadly a lot of the cool entertainment and events you can en­joy in the city, you can’t get here,’’ Ms Sat­tler said.

‘‘So this is an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, some­thing a lit­tle fun and get peo­ple to come out to the win­ery.’’

There are also ru­mours Santa will show up dur­ing the night.

And this will only be the first of sev­eral out­door film nights — so make sure you book Sun­day, Jan­uary 20 and Fe­bru­ary 14 (Valen­tine’s Day) in your di­ary.

‘‘We’ve been try­ing to hold a range of dif­fer­ent events, from the re­cent agrar­ian din­ner to the Re­gional World’s Long­est Lunch com­ing up in March,’’ Ms Sat­tler said.

‘‘We’re not try­ing to be the city, but we just want to of­fer a wider range of op­tions for peo­ple in re­gional ar­eas.’’

Bar ser­vice will be avail­able on the night, but there is strictly no BYO food or bev­er­ages.

Tick­ets are $17, with chil­dren 12 years and un­der $10 and four years and un­der free.

A movie and bar­be­cue pack­age can be pur­chased be­fore­hand for $30. The movie starts at 8.45 pm. To book, visit tixs­tar.com.au/ promo/mitchel­ton
