Watch Home on a blanket in Parksville’s great outdoors

The Sunset Cinema will be returning to Parksville Community Park

Sunset Cinema returns to Parksville Community Park Wednesday night.

Everyone is invited to bring a blanket or lawn chair to a movie in the great outdoors.

Now in its fifth year, the free event is a fun way to watch a movie and help support Coast Community Credit Union’s Young Entrepreneur Program.

Concession proceeds go towards the educational program designed to help students explore business.

This year the animated buddy comedy Home is showing on the big screen, based on Adam Rex’s 2007 children’s book The True Meaning of Smekday starring Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin.

When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own.

Through a series of comic adventures Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word ‘home.’

The movie starts around 9 p.m. rain or shine.
