Has there ever been a more popular villain? The humorous animated movie, Megamind will officially kick-off Movies Under the Stars this Saturday, August 3 at Holland Park. The film tells a story of a notorious supervillain, Megamind, who becomes an unlikely savior when a new villain comes to town and threatens the fate of Metro City.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy the free outdoor films presented by Prospera Credit Union and hosted by the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association every Saturday in August at Holland Park.
The movie will start at dusk, but everyone is invited to come as early as 5pm for the live entertainment and fun activities. This Saturday, the award-winning magician and educator, Great Smartini is scheduled to perform at 7pm.
Each week, movie-goers will also have an opportunity to win tickets to see Dora the Explorer Live at the Bell Centre on October 12th as well as participate in trivia contests and audience draws to win prizes donated by local merchants.
Refreshments will be available at The North Surrey Lions Barbeque – proceeds will be going to local charities including the North Surrey Lions Elementary School Book Program and KidSport.

Rise of the Guardians, Kung Fu Panda 2, and The Croods will be shown on August 10, 17 and 24, respectively and Bollywood Under the Stars on August 31, all at Holland Park, located at the corner of King George Boulevard and Old Yale Road in Surrey.
