The only thing better than summer’s day is a summer’s night and this cozy season Edmonton wants you out, about and enjoying the higher than normal temperatures with the whole family.
Starting today (Wednesday, August 17th), the city is encouraging all movie-lovers to bring a lawn chair or blanket to Sir Winston Churchill Square where they’ll be holding a series of fun events – for FREE.
Described as the ‘ultimate outdoor movie experience,’ Movies On The Square will feature pre-show entertainment, costume contests and even food trucks, in addition to showing 4 fan favourites on a three-storey inflatable screen.
All you need to do is pick a genre, pack some snacks and show up on one of the following dates.
THE PRINCESS BRIDE
When: Wednesday, August 17th
Time: 9 pm
JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS
When: Wednesday, August 24th
Time: 8:45 pm
When: Tuesday, August 30th
Time: 8:30 pm
KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS
When: Friday, September 9th
Time: 8 pm
Of course, because no one can predict the weather here in Alberta, severe conditions may result in a cancellation of the event – so cross your fingers and hope for the best.
The best part? These events are easily accessible by bus or LRT so anyone can check them out. You’re not going to want to miss it, Edmonton! It’s going to be fantastical.
When: Starting on Wednesday, August 17th
Where: Sir Winston Churchill Square
Time: 6 pm
