We’re incredibly sorry to advise that we’ve had to change the venue for tonight’s Drive-In Movie due to heavy rain and wind.  We’re really disappointed as we know how much you’d been looking forward to coming along – but with the heavy rain that’s heading our way, it wouldn’t be any fun up anyone!

Our alternate venue is GREAT LAKE CENTRE THEATRE.

If you have purchased a ticket, please check your email for more information

Many thanks for your understanding.
