Senior Executive Director Steve Dickson with Community Cinema volunteers

A star studded program of new films and classic movies has been announced for the first month of Murdoch University’s brand new open air cinema.

Oscar-tipped upcoming and recent releases like Gone Girl, Interstellar and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One as well as old favourites like The Jungle Book, The Goonies and The Breakfast Club will be screened under the stars at Lower Bush Court from Thursday, November 27, thanks to Murdoch’s collaboration with McDonald’s Community Cinemas.

Steve Dickson, Senior Executive Director at Murdoch, said the program had been designed to appeal to film lovers of all ages and preferences.

“We’ve got family films, comedies, thrillers and action movies as well as some of the biggest film releases of the year all screening at our atmospheric outdoor venue,” said Mr Dickson.

“We are committed to supporting the community and this partnership really allows us to give something back. We can’t wait to welcome the community onto campus for a magical movie-going experience.”

Volunteers comprising Murdoch University staff, students and Alumni will support Community Cinemas in running the summer season and all proceeds will go to charities which aim to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and other health issues.

The film program for the period between November 27 until January 1 is now available to view on the event website. Murdoch’s open air cinema runs until February 7 and the remaining program of films will be announced at a later date.

Film goers can also purchase tickets, book beanbags and order food for their chosen night via the website.
