The feature movie that will be shown is A Walk in the Woods starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. It’s based on Bill Bryson’s best seller about his adventures on the Appalachian Trail. “If you think our beloved Bruce Trail is long, come check out the Appalachian Trail. It stretches more than 3,500 km from Georgia to Maine!” says Caledon Hills Club Fundraising Director Linda Vezina. Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes.
The second film features Judi Dench (of James Bond fame) talking about My Passion for Trees. This is a moving documentary following Judi Dench as she explores the lives of trees, discovering how they feel, how they communicate and how they fight off invading armies and extreme weather. Duration: 1 hour
Gates open at 8 pm, so come early for a good spot or if you want to meet up and mingle with old friends. Make sure you arrive by 9 pm as the movies start at 9:30 pm (dusk).
The cost is $75 per car, which includes a $50 donation and a maximum allowable tax receipt will be issued. The event is being held at the 5 Drive-In, 2332 Ninth Line, in Oakville. Click here for directions
