THERE is something special about laying out picnic blankets and enjoying a movie under the stars with family and friends.

This is what can be expected at the outdoor cinema, called the Pierre Kitching Attorneys/Aurora Pop-Up cinema event taking place on February 26 at Londt Sports Club.

Algoa FM’s Briony Sparg, who also works at Aurora Special Care Centre, said she wanted a unique fundraising event.

“I wanted something different, a unique idea. I started researching online for fundraising ideas and chose to have an outdoor movie night.”

“We have been very fortunate that Pierre Kitching Attorneys have hopped on board with this event and they are the official naming sponsors,” she said.

All proceeds will go to Aurora Special Care Centre to help children and adults with mental and physical challenges.

Sparg added that she is hoping to raise about R25 000 for the charity but the event is weather dependent.

“I hope the weather is good because the event is outdoors. This is more of a movie night with a family environment.”

ET the Extra-Terrestrial which is an American science fiction family film, will be the movie of the night and it starts at 7:30pm. Gates open at 6pm.

“We chose the movie ET because it’s something kid-friendly and it’s a classic,” Sparg said.

Refreshments such as popcorn, slush puppies and candy floss will be on sale.

Tickets for the outdoor cinema are available on Computicket. It costs R50 for adults and R25 for children. Children under the age of two can attend free.
