School holiday hustle and bustle

The Margaret River HEART was thumping with activity over the school holiday period, offering a variety of movies, workshops and children’s entertainment to the community.

Over 600 people attended cinema screenings, 15 young people enjoyed an art workshop with The Hive Margaret River Art Collective artist Caro Bannister and nine young adults jumped on the Main Theatre stage for an acting workshop with Grace Lowry.

Margaret River HEART General Manager Nicky Hansen said this is exactly what the HEART is all about.

“There’s some really great opportunities for young folk to get away from the screens and quietly draw or get themselves out of their comfort zone and yell in a drama workshop,” Ms Hansen said.

“We have over 600 people attending the centre with their families just to watch movies.

“It’s so wonderful to see community members of all ages enjoying and participating in the arts.

“At the moment, we have magnificent art on the walls from artists all over the region thanks to the Margaret River Independent School’s upcoming 15th Annual Margaret River Art Auction.”

The Margaret River HEART team is currently working on plans for similar movie and workshop opportunities in the January school holidays.

For anyone who missed out on visiting the Margaret River HEART Cinema these school holidays, the venue will be showing an additional two screenings of the Australian movie RAMS, which premiered at this year’s CinefestOz Film Festival.

The comedy-drama film will be screened in the Main Theatre on Friday 16 October 2020 at 7:00pm and Monday 19 October 2020 at 11:00am.
