Now that the pandemic is under control, it’s time to have some fun this summer. And what better way than attending a movie at Grande Prairie’s own drive-in movie theatre?
The Grande Sunset Theatre in Evergreen Park is a local institution. It has been in business since the 1950s and was the first of its kind in Grande Prairie.
The outdoor theatre features a 40-foot-wide screen and is open all summer long.
Movies are playing every Saturday night in July and discounts are available, such as 2 for 1 nights. Tickets are between $17 and $30 per car and the movies chosen are typically family-friendly comedy/adventure classics.
For example, the next three showings are The Meg on July 17th, Terminator on July 24th, and Ace Ventura on July 31st. The August lineup has yet to be announced but past viewings have included Clueless Crocodile Dundee, Hairspray, and Jaws.
Shows begin around 10:00 pm, to ensure it’s dark enough to enjoy the movie.
The parking lot is capable of holding up to 500 cars at a time and there are portable washrooms available on-site. Evergreen Park’s concession truck is also typically nearby, so you can pick up some snacks and refreshments.
Even better, all proceeds raised at the theatre are donated towards local charities in the Grande Prairie region.
What are you waiting for? Support a good cause, enjoy a classic movie, and stay COVID safe this summer thanks to the Grande Sunset Theatre in Evergreen Park.
Grab some friends or family members, pack up the car, and settle in. There’s nothing quite like a retro drive-in movie experience.
