Down­town plaza movie impresses

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Bob Sheddy The Drumheller Mail

The com­mu­nity was treated to pop­corn and a movie in the plaza cour­tesy of a few lo­cal busi­nesses on Thursday, Au­gust 23.

The mu­si­cal ‘The Great­est Show­man’ was screened for peo­ple at the down­town plaza in the late evening, with snacks and drinks pro­vided by spon­sors.

“The idea came from a project that our Air­drie of­fice worked on with the Cen­tury 21 Pow­erRealty of­fice in Air­drie,” re­marked Lan­don Bosch of Cen­tre Street In­sur­ance. “Peo­ple from Drumheller saw our so­cial me­dia feeds and sug­gested we could do the same in Drumheller at the down­town plaza, so we ap­proached Mayor Col­berg and things just started to hap­pen.”

To play a movie in pub­lic you must se­cure the dis­tri­bu­tion rights for the movie. Ear­lier in the week, Cen­tre Street In­sur­ance, Re­al­ity Bytes, and Cen­tury 21 Pow­ quickly agreed to split the cost of pop, pop­corn, and the movie and the wheels were in mo­tion.

“We love see­ing all the ac­tiv­ity at the plaza and this was just one more thing to add to the at­trac­tions in the down­town core. We hope to set up a few of them down­town in 2019,” said John Shoff of Re­al­ity Bytes.

The or­ga­niz­ers wish to thank the town ad­min­is­tra­tion for their sup­port and bless­ing.
