Take the family for an outdoor movie at Courtenay’s Lewis Park

It’s that time of year again — Coastal Community Credit Union’s Sunset Cinema Series is back! We invite everyone to enjoy this free outdoor movie event at Courtenay’s Lewis Park. This movie series is our way of saying thank you to our Island communities and residents.

On Tuesday, July 11th, watch one of your favourite flicks on a three-storey-high movie screen, while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. If you’ve never been to one of our Sunset Cinemas, you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss out on the experience this year. The movie begins as soon as it’s dark but make sure you arrive early to claim a spot. Don’t forget to bring blankets, pillows or lawn chairs.

The movie is free but you can purchase snacks at the concession stand where all proceeds support our Young Entrepreneur program. Young Entrepreneurs is an educational, school-based program designed to help students explore the world of business, while developing valuable life and financial skills.

The concession stand sells popcorn, candy, pop, cotton candy, and glow sticks. If you’re in need of cash, Coastal Community’s ATM-on-wheels, VanGo, will be at the event. Credit union members can even access their cash surcharge-free.

Last year, Sunset Cinema raised almost $10,000 for Young Entrepreneurs. You’ll be able to learn more about this meaningful program by watching our Young Entrepreneur trailers at the beginning of the movie.

From July 10th to the 15th, 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.
