Drive-in Movies are back on the Sunshine Coast. Starry Nights Outdoor Movies will be presenting a retro double feature of ‘Labyrinth’ and ‘Stand By Me’ at the Eumundi Drive-in and the Maleny Drive-in on Friday 20 March and Saturday 21 March.
The movies are screened in Full HD, and stereo sound is transmitted to cars via FM radios. Speakers at the front of the screen pump out sound to those seated. The screen is a huge 10m x 6.5m (viewing size).
From a peak in the 1950’s with hundreds of Drive-ins across Australia, Drive-ins have dwindled down to a handful – with the only venue in South East Queensland located on the Gold Coast at Yatala. Starry Nights is bringing back the good ol’ days of the Drive-in with their ‘pop-up’ screenings at the Eumundi and Maleny Showgrounds. A truly unique night for first-timers and a nostalgic trip down memory lane for those lucky enough to grow up with these fun nights out.

A bit about ‘Labyrinth’ (G)
Young Sarah is left home alone by her parents and she has to babysit her little brother Toby. But the baby keeps crying and Sarah, while telling him a story to make him sleep, inadvertently conjures from a fantasy world the Goblin King (starring a very mulleted David Bowie) who steals the child and brings him to his castle in the middle of a labyrinth. Sarah has to rescue him before midnight, or the baby will become a goblin...
A bit about ‘Stand By Me’ (M)
It's the summer of 1959 in Castlerock, Oregon and four 12 year-old boys - Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern - are fast friends. After learning of the general location of the body of a local boy who has been missing for several days, they set off into woods to see it. Along the way, they learn about themselves, the meaning of friendship and the need to stand up for what is right.
