Central Coast Council is encouraging the community to attend a free outdoor movie night at the welcoming town centres of Toukley, Gosford and Wyong across the Coast these school holidays.
The free open-air cinema nights are aimed to activate spaces and places to complement other activities within the town centres for families, community and visitors while supporting small businesses.
Outdoor movie night program dates:
Toukley, Village Green – Saturday, 23rd September 2023
Gosford, Kibble Park – Friday, 29th September 2023
Wyong, The Chapman Lawn – Saturday, 30th September 2023
Council’s Director of Community & Recreation, Ms Melanie Smith said attendees are encouraged to enjoy dinner or grab a takeaway from a local eatery and sit down under the starry night sky for a free open-air screening of the family movie – ‘Stuart Little’ (1999).
“This free family event will also have a range of activities for the kids including crafts, circus play space, roving entertainment and lawn games,” Ms Smith said.
“Arrive at 4pm to throw down a picnic rug, join in some activities, have dinner and enjoy a great evening out before the movie starts at 6pm.”
Council Administrator Rik Hart said placemaking events in town centres benefit both local businesses and the community.
“Movie nights, together with a range of other programs and events happening to activate Toukley, Gosford, and Wyong, support local businesses and contribute to the local economy, as well as creating vibrant hubs and experiences for locals and visitors to enjoy,” Mr Hart said.
“This is one way that Council helps to improve, activate and maintain our town centres.”
