Salmon Arm mall hosts drive-in movie to help food banks

A limited number of cars will be able to take in the movie for a cash donation.

On a normal summer night, Salmon Arm residents would have to drive south to Enderby to take in a drive-in movie, but that’s changing next weekend.

The parking lot at Piccadilly Mall in Salmon Arm will be transformed into a drive-in movie theatre at dusk on Aug. 29.

The gates for the event open at 7 p.m. Organizers stated that it is an alcohol- and drug-free family event.
