Free spooky special for Penrith moviegoers


Enjoy movie magic at Penrith City Council’s free St Marys Cinema series this October to December, as Coachmans Park plays host to three outdoor movie nights for the whole family to enjoy.

Each night of the St Marys Cinema series will embrace a seasonal theme with Spooky Cinema kicking things off on Friday 28 October 6pm-9pm. 

You’re invited to enjoy the family-friendly spooky classic, Scooby Doo (2002), and to dress-up in costume to embrace the Halloween theme. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed and free popcorn is on offer for the first 200 people.  

Penrith Mayor Tricia Hitchen said she was delighted to see another new event series in St Marys where the community is invited to enjoy free, family-friendly activities, right in the heart of the town centre.  

“Penrith City Council supports and encourages the creation of new events that bring our community together to enjoy and have fun,” Cr Hitchen said. 

“The St Marys Cinema series is a great activity for families to enjoy a free night out at the movies while enjoying the company of friends, neighbours and family. After the success of the St Marys Lights Up event series in May, it’s such a boost to the community to host safe, inclusive activities for people of all ages to participate in.” 

St Marys Cinema starts with Spooky Cinema on Friday 28 October 6pm-9pm, followed by Spring Cinema on Saturday 19 November 6pm-9pm and finishing the series on a festive note with Christmas Cinema on Saturday 17 December 6pm-9pm.
