Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Where can I park my car?
There will be free/street parking on location at all public movie nights.
When do the movies start?
The movies can only be seen on the big screen once the sun sets. Depending on the time of the year, gates will open about one hour before sunset. Early in the summer, movies start around 9:30 pm so gates open at about 8:30 pm. As the summer goes on, we can start movies closer to 8:30 pm and therefore, gates open at 7:30 pm. All movie times are on our flyer and our website.
What is there to do if I arrive early?
Each night we will have pre-show entertainment and activities to keep you entertained before the movie starts. If you have never been, be ready for lots of fun before the show even begins!
How large is the screen?
We have purchased one of the largest inflatable screens in Western Canada! How large is your TV at home? 50 inch? 60 inch? How does 126,720 square inches sound (880 sq. feet)? We are bringing in a 40-foot by 20-foot screen to maximize the viewing pleasure. The outside of the screen is actually closer to 45 feet wide and 30 feet high! We ask that you do not go inside the safety lines around the screen at any time.
What kind of projector do you have?
As a Community Association that relies on volunteers, we had to find ways to create efficiencies and impact oThe Community Association has moved forward with the purchase of a commercial-grade projector. It will be displaying 8,000 lumens, bright enough for everyone to enjoy a clear picture. We ask that you do not go within the safety line as the projector is worth as much as a new car! In addition, the added complications of marking out every spot each night ads a level of complexity our committee was not ready to take on. Come early to get the best spot!
How do I hear the show?
We use large speakers and play the movies through them which works great for those in the front rows. We try to keep the volume at a reasonable level so that you can have an enjoyable experience.
What do you have available in the Save-On-Foods canteen?
We are bringing the theatre experience to you with the best quality, authentic cinema food that will taste just like you are at your normal theatre - for a fraction of the cost! Popcorn, bottled pop, juice boxes, water, chocolate, candy, and chips will be available at the canteen plus much more!
How do I purchase canteen items on location?
The canteen this year is in person only so there will be a canteen trailer for you to purchase from while you are on location. You can pay with cash or a card.
Is there a minimum age to attend?
Please research each movie with age recommendations. As a community association we focus on providing family-friendly events, but occasionally some movies can have ratings above G.
Are washrooms available on location?
Washrooms, sponsored by Loraas Disposal, will be available. Washrooms will be cleaned regularly. (Disclaimer: some locations may not allow washroom facilities on site)
What do I do with garbage?
Garbage cans and recycling will be available throughout the parks for the entirety of the event.
Who is organizing all these events?
The Summer Bash events are organized by the Albert Park Community Association in partnership with Adam Hicks, School Board Trustee. We look for ways to give back to the community and during the COVID-19 lock-down, we have worked with the province on a way to boost spirits in our community.
