Cinema Under the Stars is a Family Affair

20160905-BLOG-STARLIGHT

Everybody loves the movies. But there’s nothing quite like sitting in front of a big screen spilling popcorn down your shirt and sharing the fun of the flicks with others. Sometimes…….a DVD in the lounge room just doesn’t cut it!

Cue Saturdays and Starlight Movies @ Finns Recreation Club. More than just a movie, these evenings provide the opportunity for families and friends to get together and reconnect for a bit of old fashioned escapism! Titles are chosen with the whole family in mind so everybody can feel free to pull up a bean bag and stay for a while. For those of us who remember the drive-ins of old (no age jokes necessary thanks…!) the feeling of watching a film surrounded by the stars and aromas of the evening adds to the enjoyment.

Something for everyone to enjoy, Starlight Movies are open to all with entrance to Bistro C and Finns Recreation Club free after 5pm and all day Saturdays and Sundays during September.

Now it’s just not the movies without popcorn and you can get yours fresh from the mobile ‘corn cart’ out on the lawn, complete with butter salt and a brown paper bag for just Rp18K. But if you have a little more of a sweet tooth, you can’t go past the s’mores and more platter to satisfy those sugar cravings.

Rp65K nett gets you cookies, marshmallows and dipping chocolate… everything you require to construct these delectable desserts and there’s even a selection of fresh fruit on the plate to appease some sugar guilt! Step over to the side of the movie screen and you’ll find your own little bonfire just waiting to make those marshmallows ’s’moresworthy’!! Seriously…..if you haven’t tried a s’more before you most definitely have a  treat in store! Of course, the incredible dinner menu from Bistro C is always available should you require a little more sustenance and Sports Bar is just behind you if you’re craving a cold one!

Finns Recreation Club is always looking to give back to the community and just last month they hosted a gorgeous group of guys and girls from Denpasar’s Jodie O’shea Orphanage to come along and experience a night at the movies under the stars! The Popcorn was flowing, marshmallows melting and there were giggles all round as they delighted in watching Finding Dory on Bali’s biggest outdoor movie screen! But it wasn’t only the kids who made the most of the evening. Mums and Dads and members alike moseyed on in with their kids in tow and settled into a bean bag of their choice to make the most of a night with family.

For an all ages evening of good old fashioned entertainment, Saturday Starlight Movies @ Finns Recreation Club is hard to beat. Movies commence from 7pm each week and you can check out what’s screening on a weekly basis on their website: cangguclub.com or via instagram: #cangguclub. Entry is free for the public with no day pass required. While you might not be able to roll your Jaffas down the aisles, Saturday night movies under the stars @ Finns Recreation Club comes pretty close to replicating those magical movie night memories.
