Free movies under the stars

Local parks open up for some pleasant night time entertainment with Pics in the Park. Leichhardt Council’s annual free outdoor movie program will kick off on Friday 23 January with the Yabun Movie Night, featuring the Australian film Bran Nue Dae. Bring the kids, a blanket and your favourite cheese (no alcohol at these events) to these vibrant community movie nights. The Yabun Movie Night is a collaboration between Koori Radio and Leichhardt Council and a part of the 2015 Yabun Festival. The Yabun Movie Night helps Council to build positive, respectful and meaningful local relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, organisations, communities, professionals and staff, a key part of Council’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
