Zootopia airs outdoors Aug. 23

So what could be better than a night out at the movies with family and friends

So what could be better than a night out at the movies with family and friends and a feature film like Disney’s hit Zootopia?

Well, try that same movie night outdoors, under the stars in Market Square at the Ladysmith Resources Centre on High Street and Second Ave. at an event that will help raise funds for kids with cancer.

That’s where a fund raiser for the annual Tour de Rock will be held Tuesday, Aug. 23. Everyone is welcome, with events starting at 6:30 p.m., the main feature at 7:30 p.m., when the natural lighting is dimmed.

As well as a great flick and fun atmosphere – thanks to the Town of Ladysmith Council – there will be hotdogs, popcorn and refreshments, all by donation.

Members of the Ladysmith Fire and Rescue Department will also be on hand, so children can view the fire trucks and equipment, and parents can pick up some pointers on home fire safety and smoke alarms.

This is the fifth year that Ladysmith council has put on the outdoor movie for the Tour de Rock and, as Coun. Rob Hutchins has stated, “it’s fun when we can do something that will bring entire families out and enjoy a summer evening and the end result is we have helped children that are less fortunate.”
