A free film night at Kyabram P-12 College tonight offers a fun night out for the whole family.
A free family film night tomorrow offers people the chance to take time out and enjoy the simple things in life.
Kyabram P-12 College will host its biennial movie night on Haslem campus oval.
Parents’ Committee vice-president Colleen Sutton said the event would be an opportunity for the community to come together and enjoy a fun night out.
‘‘We know families and businesses affected by the uncertainty surrounding Banksia Securities Limited are hurting,’’ Mrs Sutton said.
‘‘But we intend it to be an inexpensive night to bring your chairs, rugs and relax and have a giggle.’’
Mrs Sutton said the film Madagascar 3 — Europe’s most wanted was free to watch, and the food available before the screening was reasonably priced.
‘‘The dearest tea is going to be $5, which is your gourmet hamburger and you can get a big bowl of pasta for $3, so we’ve tried to keep costs down as much as we can,’’ she said.
Mrs Sutton said the Parent’s Committee, which was again organising the event, hoped people would come for tea and take the chance to ‘‘catch up’’.
‘‘It does start the night off; you see families eating in groups and enjoying the chance to catch up,’’ she said.
Mrs Sutton said 500 people had already indicated their attendance, and while people could RSVP to the school office, they were welcome to just turn up on the night.
She said while the event was a fundraiser, the committee expected to only ‘‘break even’’.
‘‘At this stage we know we’ll be lucky to do that because we haven’t really got the sponsors for the film like we had in previous years,’’ Mrs Sutton said.
She said just five of the 14 previous business sponsors had signed up.
‘‘I just don’t think anybody is willing to commit to anything yet, and that is understandable.’’
