Community movie night big success

On Saturday January 12 The Victor Harbor Yacht Club hosted over 350 people at the Cinema in the Park, outdoor movie night.

Audiences were treated to a 6:30 screening of Moana and an 8:30 screening of The Greatest Showman, with many families spreading our picnics on the grass.

Although the night was cold, yet again with a brisk southerly breeze, the high attendance provided a buzzing, friendly atmosphere. 

Organisers said the venue was particularly easy to manage, and despite the fact a few lost patrons mistakenly entered via the back gate, they tracked down attendants to pay their fee.

Almost $1700 in entrance fees were taken in at a cost of $5 per head. 

Organizers were also happy to meet the requests of large families and only charge for children five years old or over.

Around a quarter of attendees lefty during the interval following the first movie, but were replaced by at least a further 40 people who were happy and willing to pay $5 for just the second feature. 

The Yacht Club was noted as doing a great job at serving patrons throught both a sausage sizzle and over the bar.

Brad Butler of the Fleurieu Community Foundation said the event was a great success and that organisers would particularly like to thank the Yacht Club volunteers and City of Victor Harbor as well as a very special thanks to Optus and their manager Rob Seymour.
