The blockbuster movie “Spider-Man: Far From Home’’ will be showing on a huge outdoor screen behind the Acadian Musical Village on Friday, Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m.
This free family event, which will also feature free popcorn and drinks, is being presented on the occasion of co-op and small business weeks.
The organizers will install a giant, inflatable screen, a modern projection system and a powerful sound system to provide a pleasant movie-going atmosphere.
People are asked to bring their own lawn chairs and to dress warmly. In case of bad weather, the screening will take place inside the main building of the Acadian Musical Village. Organizers will be projecting the English version of the film with French subtitles.
Organizers will also be accepting non-perishable food items for those who haven’t already had an opportunity to drop them off at Evangeline school, at the Wellington Co-op or at any of the three branches of the Evangeline-Central Credit Union. All items collected will be donated to the Summerside and Tyne Valley food banks.
“Usually during co-op and small business weeks, we organize some kind of community event, such as a game show, a casino or a bingo,’’ said Diane McInnis, on behalf of the local organizing committee. “This year, we’ve chosen something a little different that will hopefully attract children, teenagers and adults.’’
