Free movie screenings planned for Umina
Free family movie screenings will be held in Umina this spring and summer.
Central Coast Council has awarded the Umina Community Group and Jasmine Greens Park Kiosk community grant funding to deliver free family movie nights.
A similar one-off screening hosted by the Kiosk in September 2018 attracted more than 300 visitors to the area.
The screenings will be held in the Peninsula Recreation Precinct on Saturdays, September 7, October 12, November 2 and December 7.
Jasmine Greens owner Ms Gabby Greyem said the movie nights would light up the park at night and encourage family activities after dark.
The movies to be screened are: How to Train Your Dragon. Madagascar, Wallace and Gromit, and Lilo and Stitch.
She said families were encouraged to bring picnic baskets and blankets and to set up early before the screening, and to minimise the use of plastics and to recycle any waste responsibly
"We will be collecting gold coin donations to go towards future movie nights," said Ms Greyem.
Umina Community Group committee member Ms Jenn Rochford said: "We hope the free movie nights become a regular feature on the Umina calendar, providing enjoyment for local and visiting families." she said.
Jasmine Greens Park Kiosk will be open, serving food and drinks.
More information about the screenings is available on the Jasmine Greens Kiosk Facebook page and the Umina Community Group's website.
