Drive-in movie tonight in Mannville

The Mannville-Minburn-Innisfree Family and Community Support Services (M-M-I F.C.S.S.) will be hosting a free drive-in movie on the east side of Mannville School on Friday.

Tee Breeze from Edmonton will be providing the screen and sound system. Everyone will be given a radio station channel so they can hear the movie inside their vehicle.

“Our project hope is that families take time to enjoy an evening out at an event that supports the strengthening of the family unit,” said Jannette Riedel, director of M-M-I F.C.S.S.

The Mannville Centennial Public Libray provided the licence and are surprising the community with what movie they will be featuring.

With limited space and numbers, the evening has been offered to residents of the communities of Mannville, Minburn, Innisfree and the County of Minburn.

The drive-in movie project is also supported by Mannville Centennial Public Library, Mannville Parent Council, Mannville Minor Hockey, Mannville Ag Society, Mannville Elks, Village of Mannville, Mannville Fire Department, Mannville Golden Age Seniors Society, and Mannville School.

Distancing rules will be in effect, and viewers will not be allowed to get out of their vehicles.

At 8:15pm the site will be open to begin parking and the movie will follow at 9:00pm.
