FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Drive-in movies are now a huge thing across the country. We got a lot of great feedback for our first Movie in a Parking Lot event back in May, and we are excited to announce Movies in a Parking Lot will happen all summer long.
Movie in a Parking Lot is presented by Fort St. John Co-op, Knappett Industries and VE Brandl. The event will be happening on June 26 and 27 at the North Peace Arena Parking Lot. We will be featuring Suicide Squad on June 26th at 5 P.M., 7:30 P.M. and 10 P.M., and Spy Kids on June 27th at 4 P.M., 6 P.M. and 8 P.M.
Thanks to the City of Fort St. John, we have added two more dates, June 30 and July 1st (Canada Day). We will be featuring The Mask on June 30th at 5 P.M., 7:30 P.M. and 10 P.M. and Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who on July 1st (Canada Day) at 4 P.M., 6 P.M. and 8 P.M.
