SCONE Films will screen the award-winning Australian-made, action/adventure offering, My Pet Dinosaur, this week.

Rated PG, this is a movie for the whole family. 

It will screen at 2pm on Sunday, June 25, at the organisation’s pop-up cinema at the Senior Citizen's Centre, Oxford Road, Scone. 

Tickets are $12. 

So, to be sure of admission, purchase in advance at Hunt a Book, Scone. 

The movie will be followed by a delicious homemade afternoon tea, at a cost of $5.

Scone Films’ Catherine Boulton said everyone was welcome. 

“My Pet Dinosaur is by Emmy award-winning director Matt Drummond, who also helmed Dinosaur Island in 2014,” she said.

“Reports say that it is a sort of Pete’s Dragon crossed with  E.T.

“Can we keep it?

“That question is a lot harder to answer, when the found pet in question, is a dinosaur growing at an exponential rate.

“When a young boy named Jake accidentally makes a new friend in an experiment gone wrong, a troubled town is plunged into chaos.

“But with the creature rapidly evolving every day, Jake finds it increasingly difficult to keep his new pet secret.

“Jake's friends and new girl Abbie realise they are not the only ones interested in this strange, mischievous little dinosaur and soon discover that the only thing more mysterious than what it is, is who is looking for it.

“As always, there is a warm welcome for everyone. 

“You don’t have to be a member. 

“Come with friends, or come on you own and make new friends there.  

“For insurance requirements, under-18s must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.”

Scone Films will also host movies on the following dates: Friday, July 21; Friday, August 18; Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17; Friday, October 20; Friday, November 10; and Friday, December 1.

“We are a not‐for‐profit community film group, organised by volunteers,” Ms Boulton said.

“Scone Films was established in 2009, following community forums identifying the need for access to cinema in the area.”
