JAWS screening re-scheduled for Sat. Aug. 27

Jaws Movie Poster

The second  Sorauren Outdoor Movie event, originally scheduled for a very rainy Saturday, Aug. 13, will take place this Saturday, Aug. 27, on the park’s Town Square. The evening’s festivities start at 8:30 p.m.

We’ll be showing the 1975 classic Jaws. Rated PG, the shark story is a little scary, especially for the little ones, but you probably knew that already. IMDB’s review page publishes a content advisory for parents.

The third movie in September will be a children’s favourite, at an earlier hour. You can vote for what movie will be shown on our online poll.

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Pass-the-hat donations will support the programs of the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park.

Big thanks to our 2016 season sponsors!

Support free programming at Sorauren Park

We hope you enjoyed the Tragically Hip concert broadcast live at Sorauren Park. The non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park is dedicated to bringing free programming to the park, including the Outdoor Movie series, the natural ice rink, and last year’s 20th anniversary celebration.

We’re also dedicated to advocating for the completion of the park, including the new community centre and the forthcoming bake oven.

But we can’t do it without your support. You can donate online to support our activities, or feel free to “feed the hat” when we pass the hat at some of our events.

Thanks for supporting Sorauren Park!
