Pre-show activities start at 7:00 pm with movie starting at dusk (usually around 9:20 pm in July and by the end of August around 8:30 pm). These activities are organized by our community partners and change week to week. In the past groups have had games, facepainting, pony rides, sidewalk chalk on the road, colouring table, lego, bubbles, crafts, bouncy castles and have even brought in Little Ray’s Reptiles Show, Magic Shows and Live Musicians. So it changes from week to week but there is always something to keep you entertained before the show.

Concession stand opens at 7:00 p.m. selling hot dogs, popcorn, chips, cold drinks, and cotton candy with .50 cents from every $1.00 going to our community partner.
