SURREY â€” Five fun films will be shown during the Movies Under the Stars series at Holland Park this summer.
The 11th annual event, staged by the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association, will fill the park with movies every Saturday evening in August. Admission is free.
The BIA credits Prospera Credit Union for its financial support in the expanion of this year’s MUTS series to five nights, as part of Prospera’s B.C.-wide Cinema Under the Stars summer film series.
"Wreck-It Ralph" starts off the summer movie series on Aug. 1, followed by "Home" on Aug. 8, "How to Train Your Dragon 2" on Aug. 15, "Cinderella" on Aug. 22 and "Big Hero 6" on Aug. 29.
Each movie begins at dusk, but everyone is invited to arrive early to participate in family-friendly activities and watch performances by local entertainers. Staff from local branches of Prospera Credit Union will be handing out free popcorn (by donation to Surrey Christmas Bureau).
"If you come early, bring a picnic dinner or support the North Surrey Lions Club, who will once again be barbecuing hamburgers and hot dogs, with proceeds donated to local charities."
â€œWeâ€™re very pleased to announce that Prospera Credit Union has signed on to support Movies Under the Stars for another five years,â€ said Elizabeth Model, CEO of the Downtown Surrey BIA. â€œIt is events like this that help build community.â€
Added Waheed Hirji, interim president and CEO of Prospera Credit Union: â€œItâ€™s not easy to find an activity the whole family can enjoy together so this is our way of giving back and making summer a little more fun for everyone. We hope youâ€™ll join us!â€
Holland Park is located at 13428 Old Yale Rd., Surrey.
