History of Movie Night

The Cherrybrook “Movie under the Stars” was first held in 2012 as part of a celebration to open the refurbished John Purchase Oval.

Hornsby Shire Council approached 1st Cherrybrook Scouts and John Purchase Public School to run an event to provide a night of fun and entertainment in the local community to celebrate the opening of the facilities, which began with the official opening by Mayor Nick Berman, with special guests from Hornsby Shire Council and John Purchase Public School Principal Jo Marsha

A good crowd of just under 1000 people stayed on after the opening and watched the first Movie Under the Stars event with the screening of ‘Rio’

The night was a huge success, so much so that all three parties conducted an even bigger night for 2013 with the screening of Madagascar 3 – Europes Most Wanted’.

In 2014, 1st Cherrybrook Scout Group was solely responsible for bringing the movie magic to the big screen. Scary but funny, a crowd of ~2,000 went back to school with a screening of Monsters University.
