The magic of Movies will be bringing physical distancing entertainment to your community.

As the summer season begins, Fresh Air Cinema is partnering with FortisBC to offer families a way to enjoy a night out with their loved ones while staying safe in light of COVID-19. The event will be free by donation with 100% of proceeds going to Nelson Community Food Centre, Salvation Army & Our Daily Bread - all three are local food banks.

We would also like to thank the Nelson & District Credit Union for their generous donation of $1000 for each of the local food banks. That is a total of $3000!

Simply show up in your car, tune into the FM radio station and watch a movie under the stars from the comfort of your car.
