Regrets for treatment of Wardell CORE?

After Ballina Council's recent decision, at its Finance and Facilities Committee Meeting, to effectively evict the Wardell Community Organised Resilience Effort (CORE) from the War Memorial Hall, in mid-flood recovery, some were having second thoughts at their Ordinary Meeting yesterday.

With the decision of the Regent Cinema in Murwillumbah to come on board the Byron Bay Film Festival this year comes another benefit to the region: a schools program.

Primary schools can be treated to a range of movies – all rated G – from Monday 5 to Wednesday 7 March, for just $8 per student.

Secondary students are able to view a concurrent range of films – from documentaries to animations, many with an environmental theme.

Schools are encouraged to book ahead. Sessions are set to commence at 10.30am, with an arrival time of 10.15am.

For bookings and program details please contact the cinema: call 02 66728265, or email [email protected].
