Ku-ring-gai’s favourite drive-in cinema makes its return on Thursday 28 October.
With a stockpile of film titles including new comedy Free Guy, animated adventure Ron’s Gone Wrong and Marvel’s latest action Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the public can once again experience movies on the big screen.
In true drive-in style the program also includes classics such as Grease and The Greatest Showman, plus a special opening weekend of Halloween-themed movies.
The drive-in cinema will return to the Showground on the evening of Thursday 28 October. It offers the enjoyment of a social experience from the comfort of your own car bubble, and is inherently Covid-safe!
Running Wednesday to Sunday across six weeks, patrons can savour the spring evenings with meals from on-site food trucks along with drinks, sweet treats and the famous Sunset popcorn.
Ku-ring-gai was the first council area in NSW to reach the 70% full vaccination milestone. Mayor Dr Cedric Spencer said local residents would be keen to experience the big screen in a safe outdoors environment.
“The Sunset Cinema is bringing entertainment back to Ku-ring-gai in a safe and contactless way.”
General Manager of Sunset Cinema Brad Garth is thrilled to bring this event back to the Ku-ring-gai community. “Our first season last year was a blockbuster hit and we were overwhelmed by the warm reception from the locals”. He welcomes the opportunity to “transform the iconic St Ives Showground into an event many can enjoy. We’re bringing captivating experiences to the broader Northern Sydney area”.
Gates open at 6:30pm and the movie starts at last light around 8:30pm. Tickets are expected to sell out fast based on multiple sold-out sessions last year.
