WITH two movies down, and three to go, there's still time to enjoy free outdoor films this summer as part of the Shire of Mundaring's Cinema Under Starlight series.
The season kicked-off with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 at Glen Forrest Oval, followed by family favourite Moana at Chidlow Oval.
Cinema Under Starlight coordinator Tracey Peacock said that the cost-free, community events were a great way to spend the weekend with family and friends.
"Cinema Under Starlight is a great way to entertain the family without having to travel outside of the local area. Along with our sponsors Lotterywest, Linley Valley Pork, Acciona Trility Joint Venture and Mundaring Community Bank Branch - Bendigo Bank, Shire of Mundaring is pleased to be able to offer these free events to the community," Ms Peacock said.
"Support from our sponsors has also enabled the Shire to extend the movie series this year to include a fifth event, offering further opportunities for residents to enjoy the warm summer evenings."
With the first cinema event in January drawing an impressive crowd of 350 people, Ms Peacock said there were three more opportunities in 2018 to enjoy a special cinema experience.
"We really want to encourage people to make the most of the program this summer," she said.
"There's lots on offer before each movie including food and beverages for sale as well as activities such as face-painting and other children's entertainment."
Next up is Cars 3 (rated G), which will show at Mundaring Recreation Ground on Saturday 17 February. Gates open at 6.30pm for an 8pm movie start.
Movie goers are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or low-backed chairs to sit on.
