Pothole Park goes Hollywood

It's summer movie time again in Invermere.

It’s summer movie time again in Invermere.

The District of Invermere will be hosting a family movie night on July 30 in Pothole Park, and all are invited to attend. The movie, Rio, will be projected onto a screen so viewers can sit and relax anywhere in the park and watch the film, either on the grass, or on blankets and chairs brought from home.

There will be more than just a movie showing, however.

Pre-show entertainment will provide families with some fun and games before the sun goes down. There will be a hula-hooping contest, inflatable pony races and an air guitar contest. Food and refreshments will be available at local service group concessions, such as the Summit Youth Centre’s, which will be selling popcorn, candy and drinks.

At 10 p.m., as the evening gets darker and the games events wrap up, the movie will play.

“This event was a great success last year and hopefully this year will prove to be no different,” said Nancy Smith, confidential secretary for the district.

Rio is a CGI family film from the creators of Ice Age that was released in April of this year.

Rio follows the adventure of Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, U.S. When Blu meets the independent  and lovely bird Jewel, he goes on a journey to Rio de Janeiro and has an adventure in the tropics.
