All nine of the volunteers met in August to go through possible options from TIFF. The club tries to choose a variety of movies for each season.

“It brings a lot of culture to our community,” Roberts said. “We’ve really certainly travelled the world through Beach Flicks.”

Movies take place at the Eaglecrest Golf Course. Doors are at 6 p.m. and show is at 7 p.m. For information on upcoming movies, visit beachflicks.ca.
