Back after a two year hiatus, the annual free season of event film screenings at City of Perth Northbridge Piazza & Superscreen has returned for a colourful Spring/Summer 2022.
With films for both kids and adults multiple nights a week, the season’s curator David Downie is welcoming the return of free all-ages friendly events to Northbridge’s dedicated community space.
“Northbridge is simply a better place when it’s able to be enjoyed by everyone in the community and this film season offers something for everybody,” said Downie.
“This is the perfect season to get out of the house and here’s something to bring friends and loved ones together that’s not going to break the bank.”
Having kicked off at the end of the school holidays, screenings are already becoming a must-attend, with crowds returning to the popular Free Flicks for Kids family movies, on selected weekend evenings til 17 Dec, and welcoming a special Monday night edition for Halloween: Tricks and Treats.
For the adults, Date Night is back each Wednesday til 21 December, celebrating love in all its cinematic forms with friendship flicks, rom-coms and cult classics – the perfect opportunity to grab dinner and a movie – with films programmed through a rainbow lens for Pride month in November.
Free Flicks for Kids and Date Night films in December promise to take on a holiday flavour under the banner Festive Flicks.
In the meantime, the Piazza will also welcome back music lovers 29 & 30 October, warming up for the Perth International Jazz Festival with their official program Jazz On Film (curated by Revelation), showcasing some of the great and surprising moments, sounds and artists of the jazz movement.
Film goers all season are invited to arrive early and settle in on one of the Piazza’s comfy beanbags as each film’s proceeded by free live entertainment, from kids magicians to stellar local musicians, including Magic Matt, Mike DeGrussa, and Little Miss Squeezebox.
Bring a picnic and rug or leave the catering up to the neighbourhood’s world of dining options – you’ll be spoiled for choice, with something to suit every taste and budget – including Northbridge Brewing Company right next door offering a $15 takeaway pizza special.
