The smash hit Aussie film The Sapphires will be shown at the old Dookie quarry as part of Greater Shepparton City Council’s free Summer Film Festival on Saturday, February 23.

Screening takes place from 8pm.

Greater Shepparton festival and events officer Liz Connick said the quarry would make a fascinating outdoor movie location.

‘‘Bring a chair and a rug in case it gets cool, wear covered shoes and picnic while you relax under the stars in this unique location,’’ Ms Connick said.

Soft drinks, popcorn, ice-cream and coffee will be available for sale.

Parking will be available at Dookie Recreation Reserve, then it’s a short walk into the quarry at the end of Baldock St, Dookie.
