Star Cinema is getting closer to its goal of raising $200,000 for theatre upgrades.
This Sunday (Sept. 16) the Bayside Big Band and The Islanders will help them get one step closer, performing a benefit concert in Beacon Park.
A Starry Afternoon of Music happens from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Star Cinema representatives will be on hand to serve up popcorn and refreshments will be available.
“The concert is not only a way for us to raise money for the Save Star Cinema fund, it’s also a way for us to say ‘thank you’ to all the people who have supported us already,” said theatre manager Lindsay Pomper.
“It’s a great community event and the Bayside Big Band have generously donated their time to come out and help raise funds for the Star,” added event co-organizer Kenny Podmore.
The concert is free but all donations for popcorn and refreshments will go towards Star Cinema’s upgrades. For more information or to donate, visit www.starcinema.ca or call 250-655-3384.
