Movies by the Lake – The Wizard

July 23 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

“If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits Spencer Smith Park, you’re gonna see some serious stuff.”

Ok, maybe that’s not exactly what Doc Brown said, but he couldn’t be more right……..it’s Movies by the Lake!

Brought to you by the businesses of Burlington Downtown, it’s “Lights, Camera, Action” on this cinematic summer staple, Tuesdays July 9th – August 20th. No matter what kind of movie-goer YOU might be, we’ve got all you movie lovers covered. Whether you want to dine like Henry Roth, explore like Alan Grant, discover the world’s best cup of coffee with Buddy, get your fit on with Patches O’Houlihan, adventure out just like Corey Woods or be first in the class (or maybe just first in line for delicious nibbles) like Goose & Maverick, it’ll be an experience you won’t want to miss.

Make it a night (or several!) to remember as an amazing assemble awaits you at this FREE event series. With a supporting cast of dinner & drinks, shopping and exploring before the show, package your own cinematic evening alongside our over 400 businesses. Held weekly in Spencer Smith Park, the options for a red-carpet night are endless. With several of our small businesses making cameos in the park each week, supporting local has never been so easy. It’s truly something you Hollywood’nt want to miss.

Returning this year is our fan favourite: movie trivia! Are you a mastermind of movie villains? Up to scale on the music that makes the movies? Holding onto some Oscar worthy film knowledge? Strut your movie stuff with 10 new questions each time we play.

CineStarz will be on-site with popcorn for sale (***CASH ONLY***)
