Grab some popcorn and hold tight, because there’s a film experience with a difference coming to town.

You might have worn those funny glasses and seen a 3D film, but Challenge Community Services is inviting people to take in a 9D film on Wednesday.

A mobile cinema will be rolling into town to treat moviegoers to a short film that an organiser described as a “frenzy of sensations”.

It will be part of a fete day at Connexions Cafe on Johnston St, where the cafe staff will also be cooking up a storm and people with disabilities will be hosting stalls to sell their creative output such as jewellery and woodwork.

Film audiences will experience moving seats, wind in their hair and rain on their face, among other sensory stimulation.

Organiser Julia Csanki said 9D movies were “really fun and there’s a lot going on”.

Proceeds will go back to Challenge Disability Services programs. Film bookings can be made on 6763 1873, but people can also just turn up and enjoy the fete. A Challenge staffer has even volunteered for a pie-in-the-face fundraiser.

About Challenge Community Services

60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disabilities. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 600 staff, 85 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
