After sell-out screenings since Covid, Starry Nights Outdoor Movies has announced they will be hosting more drive-ins at the Eumundi Showgrounds with the next event set to please crowds.
The classic film ’The Shawshank Redemption’ is scheduled for the drive-ins on Saturday 10 October.
Trent Harvison from Starry Nights said he’s excited to be screening the Oscar-nominated gritty prison tale on the big screen.
“It’s one of those films that stands the test of time – an uplifting prison drama with sensitive direction and fine performances from a stellar cast led by Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins,“ Trent said.
Car numbers will be limited for the screening – with vehicles to be spaced at least two metres apart to ensure appropriate social distancing.
Drive-in guests simply need an FM radio to be able to tune in to the soundtrack on the night.
Tickets are just $30 per car and sold in advance to ensure a contactless entry. To pre-book tickets, visit www.ticketebo.com.au/starrynights
There will be a candy bar on site with the all-essential popcorn. For dinner options, guests are encouraged to to bring a ’car picnic’ or pre-order from The Imperial Hotel Eumundi (Ph: 5442 8811), Sala Thai (Ph: 5442 8804) or Il Mio Posto (Ph: 5442 7026) and then pick it up on the way to the drive-in.
Social distancing should be observed at all times, with guests asked to remain in or near their cars unless absolutely necessary.
Bathrooms on site will be monitored, and regularly cleaned and sanitised. Guests are also asked to take home what they bring as there will be no rubbish bins on site.
