In July, Coastal Community Credit Union’s Sunset Cinema Series returns to a screen near you.
Thousands of Island families in six communities have enjoyed our outdoor movie nights over the past six years. We’re inviting everyone again to enjoy a free movie by the light of the stars on July 10 at Courtenay’s Lewis Park.
We can’t think of a nicer way to say thank you to Islanders of all ages for their support than finding ways to build family and community togetherness. Don’t miss out on the chance to watch Ferdinand on a three-story screen while enjoying the great outdoors.
If this is your first time catching one of our flicks, remember the movie may begin as soon as it’s dark, but you’ll want to arrive early to find a spot for your blankets, pillows or lawn chairs—and purchase a few snacks. Our own ATM-on-wheels, VanGo, will be available for anyone who needs cash (surcharge-free for Credit Union members).
Our concession stand sells popcorn, candy, pop, cotton candy, and glow sticks, all in support of our Young Entrepreneurs program. As you’ll see in the trailers before the movie, this exciting school-based initiative allows elementary students in classrooms across the Island to design their own business, developing their financial and money management skills while having a lot of fun.
Last summer, we raised over $10,000 to help our kids explore the world of business.
From July 7 to the 13, Island residents can attend other Sunset Cinema events, featuring additional fan-favourite flicks. To learn which family-friendly movie is playing at each Island location, visit the events section of Coastal Community’s Facebook page (facebook.com/CoastalCommunity) and be sure to RSVP to your community’s event.
