Newcastle Cinema Under the Stars at King Edward Park draws crowds despite weather

Hot, windy conditions weren’t enough to stop thousands from turning out to enjoy a movie in the open air on Saturday night.

The animated favourite Sing was the main feature of the 11th edition of the Newcastle Permanent Cinema Under the Stars, at King Edward Park. Newcastle Permanent CEO Terry Millett said the event was “a great night out”, despite the weather.

“Families filled King Edward Park from early evening, taking part in the family-friendly circus workshops and small-sided football, and enjoying the live music before settling back with their popcorn to enjoy the movie, Sing,” he said.

“It was a delight to see that, despite the weather, our Cinema Under the Stars event was a great night out for families with lots of laughing children and smiling parents.”

The next event will be held at Maitland Park on January 19, featuring the animated movie Moana.
