Hume families are being encouraged to make the most of their summer weekends by kicking back at the council’s outdoor movies.

As part of Hume Summer Sessions, the council is hosting outdoor flicks at parks and community centres across the municipality.

Mayor Geoff Porter said the much-loved cinematic events were an opportunity for families to spend time together and enjoy the warm weather.

“These free outdoor movies are a relaxed, fun and popular event for people of all ages, and a great way to get to know your neighbours,” he said.

The next outdoor cinema will be set up at Roxburgh Park’s Homestead Community and Learning Centre, 30 Wiltshire Drive, on Saturday, February 3.

The movie will be Moana.

The Summer Sessions will move to Sunbury on Saturday, February 17, when Beauty and the Beast will screen at the village green.

On Friday, February 23, Broadmeadows Civic Plaza will host a screening of Despicable Me 3, while The Lego Batman Movie will be shown at Tullamarine’s Leo Dineen Reserve on Friday, March 9.

The events start at 6pm with food stalls and entertainment, the movies start at about 7pm.
