Outdoor Star Wars screening to benefit Chilliwack Bowls of Hope

A few lucky moviegoers will get a chance to go to a drive in right in Chilliwack.

Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker will air on July 10 in the parking lot of Cottonwood Centre, and all the proceeds from donations gathered will go toward the Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society.

The event is being brought to town by Fresh Air Cinema, the group that regularly sets up free movies around towns throughout the summer on their outdoor screens.

The Star Wars showing is a fundraiser, and they are asking for a minimum donation of $30 per car, for those who can afford to do so. There are only 50 cars allowed at the screening, and tickets went on “sale” through an Eventbrite page on July 2. Donations are being collected on site.

Because it is a fundraiser with limited attendance available, they are requesting that anyone who cannot use their ticket let them know as soon as possible so they can be re-released to the public.

The sound for the movie will run through your vehicle’s FM stereo. The gates will open at 8:35 p.m. and the movie will start at about 9:25 p.m.

There are social distancing rules in place, which are available on the Eventbrite page and the event’s Facebook page, called FortisBC FreshAirCinema:Chilliwack – Star Wars Rise of Skywalker.

There will be second film shown on Saturday, July 11. Onward will air at 9:25 p.m.
