Not your typical movie theatre

Grab your popcorn and head to the first tee at Greywolf Golf Course for a night out as Panorama launches its newest summer feature for the whole family.

Panorama Mountain Village will be presenting the animated movie Rango at Greywolf Golf Course on July 17.

The movie will be shown on a massive three-story inflatable screen, located on the beautiful hole one on the course.

This is Panorama and Greywolf’s first time putting on this event, and if feedback and attendance are positive, there could be more events happening throughout the summer months.

Those interested in attending the showing are asked to arrive by 9 p.m. for the 9:30 p.m. play-time.

Blankets, lawn chairs or other means of comfortable seating are permitted and encouraged to be brought along.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase at the event.

Admission is free, though guests may make a donation to the Panorama Firefighter’s Association.

These donated proceeds will go towards the charity of the firefighters’ choice, which is Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

“We’re looking to add a family-friendly event,” said Scott Morgan, marketing consultant at Greywolf Golf Course. “When the screening company approached us about a movie, we thought it was a good idea and a good fit for that.”

“We’re excited to offer our guests this unique outdoor movie experience”, said Director of Golf Chad Thomlinson in an official press release.

“How often do you get the chance to watch an outstanding movie in one of the most beautiful outdoor settings in the world?”

Rango is a computer-animated comedy that was released in theatres in 2011, and will be available on DVD shortly.

The movie stars the voices of Johnny Depp and Abigail Breslin.

Since its release, the movie went on to earn over $100 million in North America at the box office and has received critical acclaim from reviewers.

“It’s a great movie to see in an outdoor viewing area,” said Morgan on why people should come to the event. “It’s a beautiful setting and a quality movie, and a chance to donate to a good cause.”
