Monday, Oct. 27, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Grab the family, some chairs and popcorn and head downtown this Thursday, Oct. 30, for some early Halloween fun on the first ever outdoor movie night at the Halifax Public Gardens.
The featured movie, Ghostbusters, will be shown on a screen set up between Horticulture Hall and the bandstand, near the centre of the Gardens. The free show starts at 7 p.m. and runs just over two hours.
Those interested should come early and use the Spring Garden Road gate, behind Horticulture Hall. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own snacks and chairs, to ensure they get a seat. The benches on site will accommodate up to 400 people.
This event is weather dependent. If rain is in the forecast, a decision will be made by about noon on Thursday about whether the event will proceed. People are asked to call 311 ahead of time if they think it might be cancelled.
This is the first time the Public Gardens is offering a movie night. The event is part of the Gardens’ ongoing efforts to offer fun free activities for visitors of all ages. For more information on the Public Gardens, visit http://www.halifax.ca/publicgardens/.
