Shoalhaven City Council in partnership with Optus is hosting a free Open Air Cinema Roadshow across the Shoalhaven this Summer.  

Starting in December the Open Air Cinema Roadshow will run through to April next year to coincide with 2022 Youth Week and Seniors Festival.  

Shoalhaven City Council Director City Lifestyles Jane Lewis said the free events are a great chance for families and friends to connect over the summertime. 

“After what has been a particularly challenging year for many families within our community to navigate, I’m pleased to announce that Shoalhaven City Council in partnership with Optus is hosting a free family-friendly Open Air Cinema Roadshow ”, Ms Lewis said.  

“Our Open Air Cinema Roadshow is planned across the Shoalhaven including events in the north, central and south of the City – so everyone can join in the fun. These events will no doubt prove popular, and I encourage the community to register early to attend”, Ms Lewis said.  

“Council is proud to provide opportunities, such as the Open Air Cinema Roadshow, for the community to re-connect and have fun with one another after a challenging couple of years. These types of events help to foster a connected and inclusive community”, Ms Lewis stated.  

Optus Territory General Manager, Central NSW, Nick Gibson said "We're so pleased to be partnering with Shoalhaven City Council to bring the Open Air Cinema Roadshow to the community after a challenging year. We hope that everyone enjoys reconnecting with their fellow community members through these movie nights,”.  

"At Optus, we're listening to customers, and committed to connecting customers through technology - and the Open Air Cinema Nights powered by the Optus Truck is just one of the ways we're doing this in Shoalhaven," added Mr Gibson.
