Drive-in theatre, snacks, sunset and Disney – all the makings of a spectacular weekend.
This long weekend, you can find all of those things in one place as a pop-up drive-in movie theatre is coming to Royal Beach in the Royal Bay neighbourhood –running from Friday, July 3 to Sunday, Aug. 2.
The “Seaside Cinema” will be hosting three free screenings over the course of the long weekend: Moana on Friday, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl on Saturday and Mamma Mia! on Sunday.
On the event page, it states that gates will open at 8:30 p.m. each night, with the movies starting around 9:30 p.m. depending on light. There is a limit of 50 vehicles per showing.
No food and drinks will be sold at the event so snack-duty falls on the shoulders of the viewers themselves.
There are portable washrooms on site and organizers are recommending that movie-goers bring a flashlight in case they have to leave their vehicles in order to use the facilities.
Attendees can only partake in the event in a vehicle and patrons are being asked to maintain adequate physical distance if leaving the vehicle is required.
The event will be dependant on weather and if a cancellation is to be made, it will happen approximately 1.5 hours before showtime.
Organizers are referring to the pop-up theatre experience as a “preview into the endless community and entertainment possibilities” of the Royal Beach Seaside Village, which also hints at the idea of more upcoming events in the future.
