Movie night set for tomorrow

FCSS presenting Secretariat on the big screen June 30

A free drive-in movie experience in Ponoka was quickly snapped up and a waiting list has been put together.

Ponoka’s Family Community and Support Services (FCSS) is hosting the event slated for June 30 at the parking lot of the Ponoka Culture and Recreation Complex, featuring the movie Secretariat starting at 10:15 p.m.

“We threw it together pretty quickly when the gathering limits were expanded,” said FCSS program manager Shelly Van Eaton.

“We thought this could be a safe, fun way for the community to share some good stuff and have a little Stampede fun.”

Due to regulations from Alberta Health Services (AHS), there was a limit of 100 people placed on the event which meant people had to pre-register. When it was announced by FCSS on social media June 24, that limit was reached in about two days and a waiting list was started.

Those attending will be given an FM radio frequency they will tune to in order to listen to the movie. In addition, the Hot Express food truck will be there and everyone will be receiving a $5 food truck coupon, courtesy of the Town of Ponoka, as well as a bag of popcorn courtesy of Servus Credit Union.
