KUCHING: Recently, about 2,000 people turned up to watch the Sarawak State Library’s ‘Movie Under The Stars’ titled ‘The Boss Baby’ – a computer-animated comedy film produced by DreamWorks Animation which was screened outside of the library.
They came equipped with lawn chairs, picnic mats, pillows and snacks. Some of them sat on the tiled floor or made do with newspapers to grab the best spots for viewing the movie. Apart from the movie screening, there were lucky draws for those who brought tickets to the show.
Those who came that night were entitled to redeem their ice-cream and popcorn. The library was decorated with replica of the ‘Boss Baby’ balloons.
There were booths selling snacks and beverages set up and food trucks stationed at the library’s compound. The free movie was projected onto a large screen outside the library building. ‘The Boss Baby’ was the 8th free outdoor movie screening in the ‘Movie Under The Stars’ series.
