Family Friendly Movies To Be Screened Outside This Summer

With the end of the school year fast approaching, parents across Windsor will be looking for fun activities which appeal to the whole family – and if they’re free, so much the better!

Thanks to City of Windsor Ward Funds provided by councillors Bortolin, Kusmierczyk and Marra, Windsor Public Library recently purchased a state-of-the-art movie projection system to screen family friendly movies outside – at parks, community centres and other venues across Windsor.  The system consists of a 25 ft. inflatable screen, projector, top-of-the-line sound system and an ultra quiet generator.

The WPL goal is to provide free, family-oriented movie nights at various locations around the city – partnering with other community groups when possible.

Together with the Forest Glade Optimist Club, the premiere screening will be on Friday, June 29 behind the WPL Forest Glade Branch (3211 Forest Glade Drive) at the Forest Glade Community Centre.  The fun will get underway at 9:30 pm with the critically acclaimed DESPICABLE ME.  In the event of inclement weather, the rain date will be the following Friday, July 6.

Other scheduled screenings include PETER RABBIT on July 13 at Fontainebleau Branch (3030 Rivard Road) and FINDING NEMO on August 17 at Sandpoint Beach (10300 Riverside Drive East).  Plans are being firmed up to schedule more screenings in July and August.  Start time for all is 9:30 pm.

Families planning on attending should bring their own lawn chairs, blankets and refreshments.  Alcoholic beverages are not permitted.

      340 people showed up at the Fountainbleau library…and it only cost the taxpayers $20,000. That’s only $588 per person. Better have been a really good movie.
