It will be an evening of big screen entertainment as the Summerland Credit Union hosts a movie night in Memorial Park on Sept. 1.

Herlinda Mills, human resources and marketing manager with the credit union, said the screen, which measures 13.4 metres wide by 9.5 metres high, will be the largest used in Summerland.

“Every seat will be a front-row seat,” she said.

The movie will be shown at dusk, but earlier, starting at 7 p.m., vendors will be set up.

Summerland Asset Development Initiative will sell hot dogs, the Special Olympics group will sell popcorn, pop and glow sticks and Murray’s Pizza will sell pizza to raise money for the South Okanagan Children’s Charity, to fund the construction of an accessible playground area in the Dale Meadows Sports Complex.

Mills said the movie is free and is being shown as a gift from the credit union to the community.

She said the movie night was chosen as a family-friendly event. “It’s nice to have something family-oriented,” she said. “I think it’s going to be a fun evening.”
