Ghostbusters 2016 next outdoor movie Aug. 25

Following the hit screening of the 1963 classic Charade, the Sorauren Park Outdoor Movie Series returns Saturday, August 25 with Ghostbusters… the wild-ride 2016 Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig version. Oh yes, Chris Hemsworth too, and some familiar faces from the original slime-busting blockbuster.

The free movie screening starts 8:30 pm as the sun sets, but come early at 7:00 pm for fresh, delicious pizza. (We sold out at the last movie.) The talented crew at Pizzeria Defina fires up the park’s wonderful new oven. The concession stand will also have fresh-popped popcorn and drinks. Bring your water bottle for refills at Owen’s Fountain.

Kids’ favourite Moana completes the Outdoor Movie season in September… a special fundraiser for renovations at Charles G. Williams Playground (“Sorauren playground”).

The Audrey Hepburn and Gary Grant 1963 classic Charade is the next Sorauren Park Outdoor Movie, on the big screen Saturday July 28.

A thriller and romance in beautiful European settings, it’s the perfect date-night movie!

The movie starts 9:00 pm as the sun sets, but come early for fresh, delicious park-made pizza from the new outdoor oven, thanks to our dinner sponsor Pizzeria Defina and its talented crew. The concession stand will have fresh-popped popcorn and drinks.

The Outdoor Movie season continues the fourth Saturday of each month into September. Ghostbusters (2016 Melissa McCarthy version) and Moana complete the season in August and September. Thanks to everyone who came out to the first movie, Babe, including all the slumber parties!

Movie screenings are free, but bring cash for pizza, fresh-made popcorn from the concession stand, Sorauren Park t-shirts, and donations to support the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park. Bring soccer chairs, air mattresses and blankets to stay comfy.
