Attendees of Kootenay Savings Outdoor Movie Night in Trail not only watched Inside Out on a 30-foot inflatable screen

Movie under the stars

Kootenay Savings' Outdoor Movie Night drew a record attendance this year.

Kootenay Savings held its annual Outdoor Movie Night in Trail on Friday, Sept. 11, and had a record breaking attendance.

Over 2200 people showed up to watch the newest Pixar film Inside Out, donating approximately $7000 in food and another $240 in cash donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

The film was shown on a 30-foot tall inflatable screen in Haley Park, and admission was free, save for the donation.

But the movie wasn’t the only draw of the night.

“This year we had a few extra things going on at the park. We had some kids games going on. We had a big outdoor Jenga and Connect Four game. We had a special visit from our mascot Super Saver Sam,” said Aaron Burke, community liaison for Kootenay Savings. “We had a few prize draws, and then we had the crew from the Royal Theatre there with their vintage popcorn machine, so we could have the fresh real butter theatre popcorn going on for the movie too.”

The inaugural Movie Night took place in Haley Park in 2008, and the event has been hosted there every year since.
