The City of Thunder Bay would like to thank everyone who voted on Facebook during the month of July to help choose the titles for the Movie Nights in the Park – Family Series. The Family Series starts Friday, Aug. 16, at Prince Arthur’s Landing and runs for five consecutive Fridays until Sept. 13.

The great line-up of family movies makes this free event, not-to-be missed! Thunder Bay Credit Unions proudly present the following line-up, based on your input:

Friday, Aug. 16 – Back to the Future Part 2

Friday, Aug. 23 – Despicable Me

Friday, Aug. 30 – Fast & Furious 6

Friday, Sept. 6 – The Big Blue (a Bay Street Film Festival screening)

Friday, Sept. 13 – Monsters University

Movies will start after sunset, once it is dark, around 8:30 – 9pm. A host of hot and cold food and beverages will be on-hand from local concessions to satisfy your appetite, or bring a picnic and make it an evening outdoors at Prince Arthur’s Landing. Before the show, the Baggage Building Arts Centre will be hosting a kid’s arts and crafts tent at the Festival Area, plus there will be free giveaways from the event sponsors. Please note that alcohol is not permitted at Movie Nights in the Park.

Audiences at Movie Nights in the Park this year will have the added pleasure of viewing a short film by a local filmmaker before each feature movie – so come early to get the best seat, purchase your movie snacks, and catch some excellent local talent. There’s a perfect spot for your chair or blanket in front of the big screen overlooking beautiful Lake Superior at Prince Arthur’s Landing!
