Stars light up big screens in Langley and Aldergrove

Seeing E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for the first time was a highlight for many people back in the early 80s.

Now’s the time to expose the family to the same fun with a free showing of the movie in Aldergrove Athletic Park at 26715 27 Ave. on Aug. 16.

The Aldergrove Business Association is bringing the classic E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial to the park along with a barbecue, concession, and kids activities with the help of The Township of Langley, Otter Co-op, Aldergrove Credit Union, and J. Visser Art & Design.

Get your movie fix started on Friday night when Prospera Credit Union brings their theatre under the stars to Willoughby Community Park next to the Langley Events Centre.

Take in The Lego Movie on the three-storey screen in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley.

Great for the whole family, while this show is also free, donations will be accepted for the charity.

It’s the sixth year Prospera has delivered the outdoor movie series to promote and support many worthy charities.

Bring blankets to sit on and sweaters for when night falls, and arrive early for the movies which both have a start time of dusk.
