Surrounded by a free kids playground and plenty of cheap ‘kids menu’ options for dinner and late night snack specials, this green grass arena allows children and adults to wind down after a long day out.

Get in early to get front row seats. There are some chairs but bring some picnic rugs too. Perhaps there are some cardboard seats on the night?

Review Rating: =D  =)  =|  =(

Product (Night Owl Kids Film fest): =D

Ambience: =D

Service: =)

Value: =)

Would I go and watch another movie? Gathering a bunch of (childhood) friends would be sweet. I really like the films they have chosen this year. For families, it could be exhausting bringing the kids out every night but a few times won’t hurt. Beats renting out movies (or do we all download them now?).

Would I pay for entry? They aren’t current blockbusters and I’m sure we’ve all seen them on TV at some stage. I think the location won’t be ideal for pay on entry but it could make the surrounding eateries certainly are now more profitable with these evenings.

Highlight: Short Films by Little Big Shots is actually pretty interesting. It’s incredible to see young kids make short films already. I remember using Windows Movie Maker during highschool to make silly science videos? Technology astounds me these days.

Suggestion of Improvement: Showing outdoor films at 6:30pm can be a bit ambitious because the sun is still up. Nevertheless, having themes according to each movie week would be awesome. Possibly ‘best dressed’ if a superhero movie is on, or whatever would be fun.

Ends: 23 January
