Movies Under the Stars

The Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) service, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) and First Insurance Agencies (FIA) are bringing Movies Under the Stars to the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds on Aug. 17 and to Comox Marina Park on Aug. 31.

These free movie nights each feature a different family-oriented movie, with accompanying information about helping to build healthy communities through sustainability, water and waste

reduction initiatives.

New this year is an exciting opportunity to win a VIP package — a picnic backpack, movie snacks, reserved seating for you and your guests and a fabulous patio chair to take home after the move is over.

“Winning the VIP package is simple: just visit the CSWM website, ‘like’ our Facebook page, click on the event tab, reply that you’re going to attend the movie night and then post a comment on the

zero waste question,” said Koreen Gurak, CVRD’s manager of communications.  “On the night of the movie, we will randomly draw a winner from those who posted their comments and clicked that

they were attending.”

The person whose name is drawn must be in the audience to win.

FIA and CSWM will be donating all proceeds from the concession stand to the Comox Valley branch of the BC SPCA. Local SPCA volunteers will work the concession, and the funds they receive will help them promote their educational programs and initiatives that help animals.

The show will begin at dusk, but come early to participate in pre-show activities and to set up your blankets and lawn chairs.

The CSWM service is a function of the CVRD and is responsible for two regional waste management centres that serve the Comox Valley and Campbell River, as well as a range of transfer stations and smaller waste-handling and recycling facilities for the electoral areas of the CVRD and the Strathcona Regional District. The CSWM service manages more than 100,000 tonnes of waste and recycled material and oversees a number of diversion and education programs.
