After a few weeks of planning and getting everything in order the Nanaimo Clippers have received confirmation from Island Health and the Provincial Health Officer that a Drive-in Theatre can proceed under new guidelines.
“We need to work within the guidelines to make sure safety is the top priority.” said Tali Campbell, Clippers general manager “We are allowed 50 vehicles per movie, we cannot have washroom facilities and cars will need to be spaced out accordingly.”
The Clippers will be offering two weekends of movies:
June 12 – Onward – Nanaimo Clippers Season Ticket Holders ONLY
June 13 – Toy Story 4 – Nanaimo Clippers Season Ticket Holders ONLY
June 19 – Step Brothers – General Public
June 20 – Toy Story 4 – General Public
June 21 – Onward – General Public
“This is a family free event we are bringing to the community during these tough times.” Campbell added “Each movie will start around 9:30PM, depending on when it gets dark.”
Anyone who is interested in trying to get a spot is asked to fill out the online form (https://forms.gle/9dRWPunBNvyRNgR56) and 50 vehicles will be randomly selected and contacted.
The location of the drive-in event will not be released until a later date.
