Enjoy free movie in Duncan on big inflatable screen with Sunset Cinema show

Watch a movie out under the stars this summer when Coastal Community’s Sunset Cinema comes to the Cowichan Sportsplex in Duncan Friday, July 17 with a showing of Big Hero 6. Now in its fifth year, Sunset Cinema offers free showings in communities up and down Vancouver Island on their inflatable screen.

"The great thing about our outdoor movie nights is there isn’t a bad seat in the house, as all films are being shown on a massive, three-storeyhigh inflatable screen," said Allyson Prescesky, manager of Community Experience and Communications with Coastal Community.

If you love popcorn, cotton candy or pop with your movie, Coastal Community has you covered. Each venue will host a concession stand, manned by Coastal Community employee volunteers, with all proceeds helping support the credit union’s Young Entrepreneur Program. Young Entrepreneurs is an educational, schoolbased program designed to help students explore the world of business, while developing valuable life and financial skills. And to help make your concession stand purchase even easier, VanGo – Coastal Community’s ATM on wheels – will be on site at most events.

"Showtime’s at dark, but come early because we have Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society on site with their Science Van to entertain kids of all ages until the movie starts," added Prescesky.

Those interested are also encouraged to go to Coastal Community’s Facebook events page and RSVP to Sunset Cinema for a chance to win a prize.
