Newcastle Permanent’s Cinema Under the Stars is Australia’s largest free regional outdoor cinema program and they're celebrating their 12th season!

A packed afternoon of pre-movie entertainment before the movie screens at sundown. The kids can try their hand at circus workshops with Circus in Education, while the grown-ups can sit back, relax and enjoy the fantastic line-up of musicians live on stage. 

Don’t forget your camera to get a photo with one of the characters from The Greatest Showman who will be making an appearance on the night. 

Movie - The Greatest Showman 

Orphaned, disrespected yet brilliant. This is P.T. Barnum, a showman on a mission for fame. But when he gambles his circus, his wife and daughters and all his money on the Swedish opera star Jenny Lind, things become treacherous for Barnum. Will he leave everything he's got behind?

Celebrates the birth of show business, and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
