Movies In The Park return

Movies are returning to the Park in Brockville!

Three family-friendly outdoor showings will be presented at sunset over the course of July and August.

On Thursday, Jul. 18 at Laurier Hill, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire will be playing.

The following week, on Thursday, Jul. 25 at the Tunnel entrance, the movie Migration will be shown.

Brockville Police said July 25 would also be a special date, as they will be partnering with Rideau Community Health Services to put on a community forum at that event. “Come check out what services are available in our community from 4-8 p.m.,” police said.

Then, on Thursday, Aug. 15 at Fulford Ball Park, Lyle, Lyle Crocodile will be presented.

All showings will begin at dusk, or around 8:30 p.m.

Residents are advised to bring bug spray, blankets, and lawn chairs to reserve your spot.

There is no admission charge for the movies and popcorn will be provided free of charge, with drinks and candy also available at the Brockville Police trailer.

Movies In The Park were made possible in part through the donation of a sound system by Gerr Audio and donation of popcorn by Papa Jacks Popcorn.


ACCESS TO LOCAL NEWS IS AT RISK.

Over the last decade, Ontarians living in rural areas, towns and small cities have witnessed legacy media outlets slashing budgets for local newsrooms, if not closing them completely, and a resulting decline of journalistic oversight in these communities. The problem of disappearing journalism was exacerbated in the summer of 2023, when Meta chose to block all trusted Canadian news from its platforms, most notably Facebook, to which many Canadians turned with the advent of instantly available internet news. With Google threatening to do the same with the impending passing of Bill C-18, it may seen on the surface that access to local news is facing unprecedented roadblocks.

At the Hometownist, we believe that the future of local journalism lies with independently owned media delivering news that matters directly to the community. Amid the bullying tactics of big tech giants and greedy, top-heavy legacy media companies, Hometownist (which encompasses Brockvilleist, Lanarkist and Quinteist) aims to be an oasis of truth in an otherwise encroaching news desert.

But we need your help to keep this news coming.

When you subscribe to Brockvilleist, Lanarkist, or Quinteist, not only will you unlock ad-free priority access to every single article, but you will also receive a daily e-newsletter delivered to your inbox highlighting stories that are important to you, without depending on any third-party social media site or search engine that has decided what you should or shouldn’t be able to read.

Not only that, you’ll also be supporting our local journalists and publishing team who work hard every day of the year to bring you trusted news and information.

We believe that access to accurate, relevant, locally-informed news is integral to a healthy community and democracy. If you believe the same, click here to subscribe to Brockvilleist.
