22/02/10 FLICKS IN THE STICKS CREATE A 'DIVE-IN' FOR SCREENING OF FINDING NEMO
Eumundi's outdoor cinema Flicks in the Sticks is heading poolside to the Eumundi Aquatic Centre for their next screening of FINDING NEMO on Friday 26 February.
Flicks in the Sticks Director Steve Beardsley says "The 'dive-in' is our first swim and watch movie -- where you can float in the pool and watch the movie. But if you don't want to get wet -- no problem, there's plenty of grassed areas at the pool to watch the movie on dry land".
"With the balmy February weather of late, it's hard to imagine a better way of keeping cool and being entertained," says Steve.
The Eumundi Aquatic Centre doors will open to moviegoers from 6pm, with the screening starting around 7.15pmish. BYO floaties, noodles, lilos for the pool, or blanket, beanbag, chairs or couch for the land. Lifeguards will be on hand to assist with pool supervision.
The FINDING NEMO screening is a fundraiser for the Eumundi Swimming Club, who will be cooking up a storm with a sausage sizzle and BBQ from 6pm.
"The cost is only $8 per person, and free for children under 3 years of age," says Steve. "The price also includes a bag of chips to munch on -- as well as pool entry after 6pm"
The Eumundi Aquatic Centre is on Memorial Drive, at the Bruce Highway end of Eumundi.
As Steve cheekily adds, "Our dive-in movie will be so much fun, you'll wet yourself!"
A bit about the movie...
A tale which follows the comedic and eventful journeys of two fish, the fretful Marlin and his young son Nemo, who are separated from each other in the Great Barrier Reef when Nemo is unexpectedly taken from his home and thrust into a fish tank in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbor.
Buoyed by the companionship of a friendly but forgetful fish named Dory, the overly cautious Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic journey to rescue his son. Meanwhile, the young Nemo hatches a few daring plans of his own to return home safely.
From its basic storyline, to the father-and-son relationship theme, to the wonderful underwater world throughout, this is really an adventure through an ocean of stunning visuals and storytelling.
