Frightful 80s Drive-In Cinema
Hop in your car and watch the first season of 'Stranger Things' on a big screen.
The spookiest time of the year is here, which means different things to different people. Perhaps you think you're never too old to don a costume and go trick-or-treating. Maybe you just like the excuse to eat plenty of lollies. Or, you could enjoy diving headfirst into as much horror viewing as you can manage.
For folks in the latter category — and those who like dressing up, too — the Georges River Council is hosting the type of event you'll want to add to your calendar. Across the evenings of Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31, it's celebrating Halloween by setting up its own Frightful 80s Drive-In Cinema, which'll be free to attend at Donnelly Park in Connells Point.
Even better — rather than just screening horror flicks, which pretty much every cinema around town will be doing, this pop-up drive-in is showing the entire first season of Stranger Things. Prepare to revisit the Upside Down and learn all about demogorgons. If you want to bring some waffles with you to eat, well, Eleven would clearly approve.
Entry opens at 5pm each night, with screenings running from 7–10pm. There are no bookings or tickets, so arriving early to nab a spot is recommended.
Also, if you deck out your car in a costume — yes, you read that correctly — and you can win a prize for the best-dressed vehicle. Clearly, given what's showing, someone is going to cover their ride with Christmas lights.
