Happening on November 25, this fun community event will raise funds for both sports clubs through food and drink purchases.

About the Film

In this popular animated film, two brother plumbers, Mario (Chris Pratt) and Luigi (Charlie Day), are transported to a magical new world while working underground to fix a water main pipe. The brothers become separated in this new world, leading to an epic adventure as they try to reunite.

“Audiences under a certain vintage will have fond memories of manoeuvring a little bouncing plumber in red, whether it was 30 years ago on those old, grey Game Boy bricks or last week, drunkenly challenging your mates to Mario Kart, insistent that you are the champion of the Yoshi Circuit. So, when there’s an animated movie adaptation, there’s no doubt you’ll get a kick out of seeing bits of gameplay incorporated on the big screen. Eating a power-up mushroom, jumping atop a speeding Bullet Bill or throwing a Koopa shell at an opponent will unlock a little “wahoo” from your inner child.”

Wenlei Ma,

Gates open at 5:00 p.m., with the movie starting at 7:00 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to come early and enjoy food offerings from the club. The rugby club bar will also be open for adults to purchase drinks. BYO will NOT be allowed.

All proceeds from the food and drinks sold will go directly to support the Kenmore Districts Rugby Club and Kenmore Bears Junior AFL clubs. This helps the clubs provide programs and equipment for local youth interested in rugby and AFL.

The family-friendly event is proudly supported by the Lord Mayor’s Community Fund and the Pullenvale Ward Councilor. The Lord Mayor’s Community Fund provides money to community projects across Brisbane that bring people together, and the Pullenvale Ward Councilor advocated for supporting the clubs.

The movie night presents a perfect opportunity for families in Kenmore and surrounding suburbs to come together for a night of entertainment, whilst also supporting two worthwhile sports clubs in the community.
