Barefoot movies are back at YAC

BAREFOOT movies are back at the YAC with the screening of Straight Out of Compton on Friday, March 4 at the Byron Youth Activities Centre.

The movie tells the story of the rise of Californian hip hop group N.W.A.

Youth centre interim manager Teeya Blatt said the return of barefoot movies was part of the refurbishment of the centre.

“This is a fundraising event for Byron Youth Service (BYS), and the movie has a rating of MA 15+, so is aimed at the wider community, not just young people,” she said.

“We are also going to put together a panel of young people to select the movies we show, hopefully mixing some new movies with some classics,” she said.

“The refurb of the centre is almost complete with a new floor and ceiling completed and the building now fully air-conditioned and running on solar power.

“The solar panels were organised by Patrick Halliday, from Juno Energy, and installed by Light Touch Electrical’s Tim Hodgson.”

“Our next step is to next step is to open up the centre for use by the community, local businesses and family groups.”

The Youth Service is also once again offering their popular TAFE accredited Hospitality and Events course for ages 16-24.

There is an information day on March 2 with the course commencing on March 7.
