Josh MacEwen was granted the opportunity by the Mansfield Outdoor Centre to get an inside look at how Mulmur Movie Nights was set up and organized. Josh even had the chance to take video footage. Unfortunately, due to the memory card being corrupted, this footage was not able to be shared. What he did see was a very well-run, organized operation that encouraged and enabled safety. They even had a professional theatre system and an FM transmitter, in addition to a concession stand. It was an authentic drive-in experience and an opportunity to experience some sense of pre-COVID normalcy, while still being safe.

Mulmur Movie Nights was made possible by the dedicated and resourceful staff members of the Mansfield Outdoor Centre, in addition to local sponsors, businesses, and other community members taking part. These sponsors include a substantial list of small, independent businesses. Many of these businesses are owned by people who experienced financial hardship due to COVID, similar to many others in our community, as many businesses are not eligible for government support to make up for lost revenues. Still, they stepped up to make this possible. The people involved in this are supporting the community in a way that most wouldn’t even think of, and you have the opportunity to take part in it!

Screenings start at approximately 9 pm, and the gates open at 8:15 pm. On Saturday, July 31st, they are scheduled to feature Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This will be followed by Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark on Saturday. To get tickets, check out www.mansfieldoutdoorcentre.ca or the Eventbrite links below. The Mansfield Outdoor Centre is located in Mulmur at 937365 Airport Rd.
