Exciting New Group in Term 4

Logan District's Movie Goers Group 
Are starting in Term 4. The plan is to meet at Logan North Library in Springwood at 11.15 am on the third Tuesday of each month and carpool to Victoria Point Cineplex to see one of the better kind of movies that do not show at any of the Logan cinemas.  If the movie time fits, the group may have lunch or morning tea together at one of the pleasant lakeside restaurants.  Non-member friends may come too of course.  

Other cinemas will be considered if there is nothing that suits at Victoria Point.

The first session will be on 21st October.  if you are interested in joining, please email Angela de Hennin at in good time to let her know your preferences. Angela will email you with details of the chosen movie by Friday October 18.

Check out some of the movies coming to the Cineplex at Victoria Point
