The July 4 movie is Onward. On July 5, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be shown.

“In a time when we’ve had to adapt to physical distancing, and when so many families and

friends have been forced to spend time alone in their homes, we’re excited to once again bring

the joy of drive-in movies to families across the province,” said Jason Bashnick, managing

director of Fresh Air Cinema.

“These offer a place where we can all connect safely and watch our favourite stories on screen under a starlit sky. It’s also a unique experience that allows family members to crunch homemade popcorn and slurp soda as loud as they like without bothering the people around them.”

This is the 14th year Fresh Air Cinema has been staging outdoor film events.

This year’s movie nights will follow provincial government physical-distancing guidelines, which include limiting attendance to 50 vehicles and encouraging people to stay in their vehicles unless visiting the restrooms. A full list of all guidelines can be found online when tickets are reserved.

Tickets can be reserved at eventbrite.ca. There is also a link on the Outdoor Movies BC Facebook page. For more information about how to get tickets and when new dates/locations will be added, go to freshairdriveins.ca.
