It's time to go bananas, with Newcastle Permanent's Cinema Under the Stars returning to Port Macquarie in February with the children's film Minions: The Rise of Gru (PG, 2022).
Newcastle Permanent Port Macquarie Branch Manager Samantha Cullen said Cinema Under the Stars is a highlight of the summer calendar.
"Pack a picnic, bring the whole family, and get there early to enjoy all the fabulous, fun, free events and activities that help make Cinema Under the Stars such an awesome night," Ms Cullen said.
The popular community event is free, and lots of fun is to be had with live music and children's activities before the film begins at sundown.
"As a customer-owned organisation supporting local and giving back is what we stand for, and Cinema Under the Stars is just one of the many ways we contribute to the local Forster and Port Macquarie communities," she said.
"Cinema Under the Stars has become a tradition on the Mid North Coast, the community loves attending it as much as Newcastle Permanent loves hosting."
"A relaxed summer evening with plenty for the kids to do and free popcorn, of course; what's not to love?"
