Movies Under the Stars kicks off Saturday in Surrey

CITY CENTRE – Movies Under the Stars kicks off this Saturday for the 10th year in a row.

 

The Downtown Surrey BIA-hosted series transforms Holland Park into a free outdoor movie theatre, and this year is bound not to disappoint with a blockbuster line up.

 

First up this Saturday, Aug. 2, is Despicable Me 2. The BIA encourages movie-goers to grab a yellow shirt and some jean shorts and dress up like a minion, as they try to break the world record for most minions in one place.

 

And there may just be a real-life minion roaming around.

 

While the movies don’t begin until dusk, there’s a variety of entertainment and activities to enjoy beginning at 5 p.m. This Saturday features pre-show musical performances by Derrick Fedele, the 2014 Junior Talent Winners and children’s performer Zox of the Forest.

 

Attendees can also take in a barbecue, provided by the North Surrey Lions Club, as well as a 50/50 draw, a trivia contest and more.

 

Upcoming movies are Rio 2 (Aug. 9), The Lego Movie (Aug. 16) and Frozen (Aug. 23).
