Event Series Event Series: Movies by the Lake

Movies by the Lake

July 9 @ 8:30 PM - 11:00 PM

Make it a night (or several!) to remember as an amazing ensemble awaits you at this FREE event series. With a supporting cast of dinner & drinks, shopping and exploring before the show, package your own cinematic evening alongside our over 400 businesses. Held weekly in Spencer Smith Park, the options for a red-carpet night are endless. With several of our small businesses making cameos in the park each week, supporting local has never been so easy. It’s truly something you Hollywood’nt want to miss.

Returning this year is our fan favourite: movie trivia! Are you a mastermind of movie villains? Up to scale on the music that makes the movies? Holding onto some Oscar worthy film knowledge? Strut your movie stuff with 10 new questions each time we play.

Designed with all audiences in mind (please refer to schedule below for movie ratings). From comedies, to 80s favourites, to iconic classics, there is something for everyone.
