SPECIAL EVENTS

The first ever WEST COAST OUTDOOR FILM SERIES !

In Bayfield’s distant past outdoor movie experiences at Pioneer Park for children and adults alike was popular in the 1960’s through to the 1990s.

This history, and the memories that it created, is the inspiration behind a vision that will begin with a West Coast Outdoor Film Series in July 2021

Big studios are delaying blockbusters, movie theatres are shuttered, but one bright spot remains. Open Air theatres, where movie goers can isolate in their own socially distant pod.

Historically, drive-in theatres in Ontario’s bucolic rural areas have been a mainstay for summer visitors, with only 16 remaining in operation today.

However, while watching movies under the stars may sound like a relic from days gone by, the drive in’s that remain are experiencing a revival due to pandemic concerns of close proximity to others.

The NEW VISION for outdoor cinema lies in the technological advances in outdoor screens and projection equipment.

Over 4 days in July the BCA will offer the visitor an experience they will never forget…and will want to attend annually.

Emmy Award winning Hollywood Director  Brad Turner and his equally successful wife Jessica Petelle are the curators of the blockbuster movies for this event!

THE WEST COAST OUTDOOR FILM SERIES IS SET FOR JULY 26-29 2021!
