Free community event making its way to town

STANTHORPE residents are in for a treat with a free outback cinema making a special road trip to the town.

Community Connections- Redlands Coast Inc will host the event simply for the pleasure of the drought-stricken families, transporting their 10-metre inflatable screen as well as five bouncy castles to add to the fun.

Co-founder Craig Luxton said the outdoor cinema is all about bringing the community together and show Stanthorpe families that city folk are supporting them.

“We know that our regional neighbours are doing it tough and our organisation wanted to help and bring a little fun into the lives of the drought affected families,” Mr Luxton said.

The free screening of The Greatest Showman will be held on Saturday, December 7 at the Stanthorpe Agricultural Society’s show ground starting from 3pm, with food and drink provided until after the movie finishes at 9pm.
