BY THE NUMBERS: How the Kirkwood Drive-In fared
THE KIRKWOOD drive-in movies last weekend have been hailed a success with a total of 222 cars attending.
Friday and Saturday night and Sunday afternoon were all sold out events with 80 cars at the night sessions and 30 in the afternoon.
The Gladstone Regional Council Events and entertainment team observed between two to six people in each car.
Gladstone Mayor Matt Burnett said the council was definitely considering hosting the event in the future.
“Council is focused on providing opportunities for the community to connect in a safe, inclusive way,” Cr Burnett said.
“The Events and Entertainment team are designing events to meet the current COVID-19 health requirements, such as the Symphony Under the Stars and a new event that we are excited to announce very soon.”
He said should the Drive-In movies be held again, the team would look to host during the school holidays with a focus on night sessions.
