Tonight the final installment in the 2014 summer movie series Cinema Under the Stars goes in Victoria Park. From what I’ve seen of the previous six screenings that have been held, crowds have been pretty decent.
With each passing week, of course, the start time creeps up by 15 or so minutes as the ratio of daylight to darkness shifts from the summer to the winter side of the ledger. Pre-show entertainment typically begins at 8 p.m., but with sunset tonight scheduled for 8:07 p.m. the screening should start shortly after that.
Tonight’s flick is Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Here’s a sneak peak courtesy of the trailer:
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
