On Saturday the 12th, the Griffith Youth Committee in conjunction with Griffith City Council, Youth Links and Youth off the Streets held a retro-themed outdoor movie night at the Griffith Community Gardens.

The films showcased were Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and The Breakfast Club – two of the ’80s era’s favourites. They’re classics, really, that still hold up and resonate with many generations today.

The Griffith Youth Committee looked to encourage the young people of Griffith to come out and enjoy the flicks.

And, they weren’t disappointed.

Griffith Youth Committee members Elizabeth Portolesi and Matilda Conlan were very happy with the turnout.

“We are very proud of how the event went and the turnout that we got, especially considering the cold weather!” Ms Portolesi said.

“We had a solid 40 people stay for both movies, and at least 80 be there at one point.

“We are very thankful to PCYC for their BBQ, as well as Peaches coffee van and Mrs Whippy for coming out for the night.”

“The biggest thanks though needs to go to LCN for their lending of the pop up movie screen, as well as our GCC liasons Peta Dummett and Tanya Aramini,” Ms Conlan said.

“We hope that the event has given us a bit of publicity to show the Griffith community the things that we hope to do in the future and what we hope to achieve!”
