City to present two free family "waste free" outdoor movie nights

The City of Greater Bendigo’s Resource Recovery and Education unit is proud to present two, “waste free” Family Outdoor Movie Nights in March featuring the 2021 animated film Smelliville.

The movie nights will take place at 6pm Friday March 18 at Crook Street Park, Corner McIvor Road and Crook Street Strathdale and 6pm Friday March 25 at Cooinda Park, Mackenzie Street West Golden Square.

Smelliville is a movie where young Max meets the Ogglies, a family of green, garbage-eating creatures who live at the dump in the town of Smelliville. When a contractor plans to build a wellness temple at the dump, Max and his pal must hatch a plan to save the Ogglies' home.

City of Greater Bendigo Resource Recovery and Education Manager Brooke Pearce said families are encouraged to bring along a “waste free” picnic to enjoy on the night for a chance to win a hamper pack valued at $150 from Harvest Food and Wine in View Street.

“All you have to do to be in the running is take a picture of your waste free picnic and email it to [email protected] ,” Ms Pearce said.

“We are wanting families to think about how to lessen their waste by enjoying a picnic that produces no waste, so this means no throw away plastics, no cling wrap and no wrapped snacks. 

“This is a great opportunity to pack up the family, bring along a waste free picnic and enjoy a free movie and a great night of family fun.”
