Experience the magic of the popular Disney film Moana when Macquarie Fields Leisure Centre is transformed into an outdoor cinema for Floovies on February 17.
Bring a blanket, camping chair or hire a pool ring and get comfortable to watch the animated musical adventure under the stars, on a 12 square metre screen.
The PG-rated film, which introduces Auli’i Cravalho as Moana and features the voice of Dwayne Johnson as Maui, tells the story of a strong-willed daughter of a Polynesian village chief, who embarks on a quest across the Pacific Ocean to save her people.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said Floovies – or floating movies – was a first for Campbelltown City, and was a similar concept to the outdoor cinema on offer at Fisher’s Flicks at Bradbury Park each November.
“It’s a novelty watching a film under the stars, on an extra big screen, and Floovies not only gives locals the opportunity to watch from the grandstand or grass areas, but also from a floatie in the pool,” he said.
“I’m sure both children and adults will get a kick out of the event, and out of the movie itself, Moana, which is popular with moviegoers of all ages.”
Cr Brticevic said part of what made Campbelltown such a great place to live was the significant sport and recreational opportunities, community events, activities and exhibitions on offer across the city throughout the year.
“The event will be a great opportunity to get together with friends or family, and enjoy what’s left of the warm summer weather at a movie night with a difference.”
Floovies will begin at 6pm, with a limited number of inflatables for hire from 6pm for $3. The film will start at 6.30pm.
