Lrgo Movie
As the sun sets in the west, gather your friends, family and neighbours to share an evening under the stars while watching a family favourite movie.

All movies commence at 8.30pm. Pre-movie entertainment starts from 7.30pm

'Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary LEGO figurine who always follows the rules, is mistakenly identified as the Special -- an extraordinary being and the key to saving the world. He finds himself drafted into a fellowship of strangers who are on a mission to stop an evil tyrant's (Will Ferrell) plans to conquer the world. Unfortunately for Emmet, he is hopelessly -- and hilariously -- unprepared for such a task, but he'll give it his all nonetheless.'
