The Prospera Credit Union Cinema Under the Stars is returning to Langley this August with two opportunities to cuddle up and watch the big screen outside.
On Aug. 7 the movie Home will be played and on Aug. 20 the new release of Cinderella.
What started as a relatively small movie night in 2009 is now a huge event for families across Langley and for the beneficiary, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley.
In past years, thousands of dollars have been raised during the movie nights for the organization’s child and youth mentoring programs.
It’s a fun night for everyone, said Mary Reeves, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley.
“The kids all run around and can just be themselves — there’s so much space,” she said.
“Everyone is so respectful and the kids are so happy.
That’s what we’re all about — making the next generation happier and healthier.”
Movies on both nights will begin at dusk, but make sure to get there early to stake our your spot. Last year saw 4,000 people attend.
There are also dozens of games and activities for kids, starting around 6:30 p.m., and many free prizes and free popcorn.
Also come prepared with blankets or chairs and mosquito repellant, said Reeves.
The event takes place at Willoughby Park, located next to the Langley Events Centre on 200 Street.
