Southern Gold Coast Dives into 70s with Swinging Safari Release

Posted on Monday, January 15, 2018

Dust off the safari suit, throw on a shift dress and get the platforms out - the 1970s retro film Swinging Safari is launching in cinemas this week and the Southern Gold Coast is getting right into the swinging spirit.

Starring Guy Pearce and Kylie Minogue, Swinging Safari was filmed entirely on the Gold Coast, with local scenes shot at Froggies Beach and Snapper Rocks in Coolangatta.

The film will screen at BCC Cinemas Coolangatta at The Strand for two weeks, with opening night on Thursday 18 January, 2018.

In conjunction with the screening, local moviegoers can enter a competition to win a retro-themed weekend getaway for two, staying at the iconic La Costa Motel in Bilinga.

The prize includes a two-night stay at La Costa Motel, two vintage bicycles from Reid Cycles to ride down to Froggies Beach for a gourmet picnic experience set up by Mervyn Roys Café and Sunlounge Collections. Anyone who purchases a ticket to see the film at BCC Cinemas Coolangatta can enter.
