To get some fresh air and watch a movie head for the outdoor showing of The Lorax.

West Shore Parks and Recreation is morphing its famous tobogganing hill behind the Juan de Fuca library into an outdoor movie theatre on Sunday.

The 2012 movie will show on a 40-foot inflatable screen. A concession will offer popcorn, drinks and Lorax-themed cupcakes.

“It’s a nice bright movie and it’s family friendly so everyone can come,” said Bobbi Neal, community development co-ordinator.

Admission is by donation with proceeds to the proposed Rotary playground at WSPR. The project will cost $244,000 and so far $104,000 has been collected in cash and in-kind donations.


The film will begin at 8:15 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 1767 Old Island Highway.
