MEDIA RELEASE - Countdown to Valentine Outdoor Cinema screening

30 January 2018

Countdown to Valentine’s Day with your loved one and friends this February with the popular Twilight Pop-up cinema series at the Portland Botanic Gardens.

The Glenelg Shire Council are bringing the Twilight Cinema back to the gardens for an exclusive screening of the romantic comedy Valentine’s Day on Friday 9 February in the lead-up to the most romantic day of the year.

People are invited to sit-back and relax in the picturesque gardens before the screening, listening to the relaxed tunes of popular local act Since Tuesday followed by DJ Chegs playing his vast playlist of songs.

Appetites will be satisfied with four food trucks on hand with a wide variety to choose from including slow cooked meat selections from Little Black Sow and fresh locally caught fish and chips from Tasty Tucker Box.

Coonawarra-based Koonara Wines and the Cide Project are returning for the gardens event with their delicious selection of locally produced wines, beer and ciders to keep thirsts quenched throughout the evening.

Mayor Cr Anita Rank said the previous Twilight Gardens pop-up cinema event in Portland attracted almost 700 people.

“The inaugural Twilight Gardens event set-up the formula for these popular screenings which have toured the shire with five screenings over the past 12 months, bringing communities together to raise funds for important causes and ensuring everyone can experience this free movie fun,” Cr Rank said.

“Importantly these events also showcase the immense talent we have in our community. We are pleased to host some great young musical talent for this gardens event with more food trucks to keep up with the demand of movie-goers and of course some popular bar options on-hand.

“Council is extremely proud of the busy events schedule it delivers year-round. The Twilight Cinema screenings are just one of our regular free events we deliver to ensure our community are entertained and we have plenty on offer for our visitors to town.

“I urge people to get in early to mark their spot … throw out a picnic rug, bring a chair enjoy a bite to eat before the sun goes down in the evening so we can enjoy this latest movie event.”

Festivities will begin at 5.30pm with the main screening at about 8.30pm when the light is appropriate.
