No more silent movies for Mansfield Armchair Cinema

Cinema goers at the Mansfield Armchair Cinema can now enjoy outdoor movie nights thanks to newly installed weatherproof speakers funded by the Nutrien Ag Solutions Community Grants program

The Mansfield Armchair Cinema is an award-winning community-based not-for-profit cinema that as well as providing great community events for the locals of Mansfield as supports the delivery of an innovative media studies traineeship program for secondary and TAFE students from the Mansfield and Goulburn areas. 

Nutrien livestock’s Jamie Beckingsale is proud to have been able to play a part in supporting a local community organization through the community grants program. “The Nutrien Community Grants program is a great initiative to help local communities. It is great to see a company like us supporting and giving back to local community groups, organizations and clubs.” \

With their brand new, outdoor speakers, the locals of Mansfield are already making the most of them! Mansfield Armchair Cinemas Karen Oliver says ‘before we received the community grant, we had to carry the speakers out every time to the village green for people to enjoy the movies. Now we have permanent outdoor sounds which is just a blessing. The movies really sound great!” 

“We’ve been able to hold some fun movie nights such as an 80’s themed night and we have a screening of Top Gun coming up, ready for the new movie to come out. The whole process of the community grants has been so easy, and we thank Nutrien Ag Solutions for this opportunity.” 

The next round of the Nutrien Ag Solutions Community Grants program opens on the 12th of July 2022. Find out more here.
