Burswood Parklands, Bassendean and Murdoch University will be the home of the Telethon Community Cinemas between 10th November 2016 and 22nd April 2017.

These volunteer-run outdoor cinema events will screen the latest Hollywood blockbusters in what promises to be an affordable, family-friendly movie experience – plus, proceeds go to Telethon and other children’s charities.

Murdoch University will start screening outdoor movies on Thursday, November 10th and will run sessions most nights (except Christmas night and some nights are reserved for private screenings) until February 4th 2017. The screenings will start with Tom Hanks in the true story Sully, while you can take the kids along to see Storks, Pete’s Dragon and the Secret Life of Pets.

If you have an opportunity to leave the kids with a sitter, you can laugh along with Mila Kunia and her band of Bad Moms or check out the latest film in the Bridget Jones franchise.

Burswood’s Community Cinema will be held at Burswood Parklands, just off Great Eastern Highway, and will start with The Girl on the Train on 24th November. The screenings will run until 22nd April 2017. Here you can catch The Light Between Oceans, a special screening of family favourite the Muppets Christmas Carol and the latest Jack Reacher film.

At Bassendean, cinema sessions will be held at BIC Reserve, at the corner of Guildford Road and Wilson Street, with sessions starting from 8th December and running until 25th March. The majority of the movies will be repeated over the course of the season, so don’t panic if you can’t make it to a particular screening. At each cinema, the gates open at 6:30pm and the movie starts at 7:45pm.

Ticket for adults are $13 for adults, $9 for concession holders and $6 for children aged five to 15, with a family ticket for two adults and two children costing $31. Take a beanbag or picnic rug along, although these will be available for hire and purchase on the night for a cost.

You can buy food and drink at each cinemas, and each venue is fully licensed so there’s no BYO alcohol. Burswood will have a sausage sizzle for just $3.50, while Dominoes Pizzas will be available at each venue from $16 each. Other menu items include garlic bread, cheese packs $5 and platters.

This is a great opportunity to watch the latest films under a balmy Perth spring or summer evening, all while supporting some important local charities.
