CANCELLED: Strange Brew

July 2 9:30 to 11:00 pm

Unfortunately due to the excessive heat we have made the difficult decision to cancel all three Canada Day long weekend shows. We will decide in the next week if we will reschedule these shows or issue refunds. Free popcorn nights, graciously donated by Waneta Mall, will now be at the July 22-24 films TBA soon.  

In their quest for free beer, bumbling Canadian brothers Bob (Rick Moranis) and Doug McKenzie (Dave Thomas) wind up working at the Elsinore Brewery, only to learn that something is rotten with the state of it. The hapless lads uncover a sinister mind-control plot by Brewmeister Smith (Max von Sydow) and must stop the scheme, which also involves Uncle Claude (Paul Dooley), a member of the Elsinore family. As Bob and Doug try to help Pam regain control of her recently deceased father's business, and prevent Smith from taking over the world, they also manage to drink plenty of their favorite sudsy beverage.

(Very loosely) based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”.

About the Silver Screen Drive-in

The Trail & District Arts Council and The Royal Theatre have joined forces to imagine your new, favourite summer experience, the Silver Screen Drive-in. Running from June to September, films will screen Thursday through Saturday at sunset in the Waneta Plaza upper parking lot. Upcoming films will include those event movies that you’ve missed seeing on a big screen, retro classics from comedy to horror, as well as those Sunday Cinema favourites been as well as Oscar winning independent films and documentaries. Plus, live performances of music, theatre, dance and more!

Confirmed films

Cancelled : July 3 – It’s a Canada Day weekend special so get in the spirit of all things True North! On Saturday, solve the mystery with the cheeky and lovable Pokémon character, “Detective Pikachu”, with a special appearance by Canadian favourite Ryan Reynolds! Plus, a free bag of popcorn for each car on each day courtesy of Waneta Plaza!

July 8 – Don’t miss out on the Oscar winning performance by Anthony Hopkins in “The Father” in this beautiful Academy Award-winning screenplay.

July 9 – Parents and grandparents get nostalgic and bring the kids to one of your favourite films from your youth, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”!  Sing along at the parade, make pretentious faces at art, and generally have fun. As Ferris says, “It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.”

July 10 – Ever felt like your neighbours were looking down on you? The Croods know how you feel. “The Croods: A New Age” follows the prehistoric family as they are challenged by a rival family the Bettermans, who claim to be better and more evolved in this hilarious sequel.

July 15 – The Barkley Marathons follows a famous prison escape that sparks the idea for a cult-like race that only had 10 finishers in its first 25 years. This award-winning, oddly inspiring, and wildly funny documentary reveals the sports world's most guarded secret.

July 16 – A nostalgic trip for anyone relive your youth with “The Goonies” when a group of young misfits discover an ancient map and set out on an adventure to find a legendary pirate's long-lost treasure.

July 17 Christopher Nolan blows our minds once again with “Tenet”, as the Protagonist journeys backwards and forwards through a twilight world of international espionage for the survival of the entire world.

The Silver Screen Drive-in is sponsored by Bounce Radio, Century 21, Kootenay Savings Credit Union, Teck Metals Ltd. and Tourism Rossland, and made possible thanks to support from Waneta Plaza and funding from the Government of British Columbia, BC Arts Council, and Canadian Heritage.
