Special movie screening kickstarts huge weekend for Goomeri
TO HELP build the festival buzz, Gympie Regional Council and The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival are inviting members of the public to a special movie screening in the Heritage Listed Goomeri Hall of Memory tonight.
- 17,000 people are headed for Goomeri this weekend
- Land rights protest trial told Gympie May threw first punch with such force it split the protester's nose
The all-ages event will be held at 6pm at the Goomeri Hall of Memory, 17 Boonara Street, Goomeri.
Starring Brie Larson and Donald Sutherland, Basmati Blues is a story about a young scientist who is sent to India to sell genetically modified rice, but has a change of heart when she discovers that the project will destroy the farmers she was supposedly sent to help.
Instead, she teams up with a local farmer and together they try to save the day.
Refreshments will be provided by The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival or BYO snacks and dinner.
This is an unsupervised event.
