YYC Mobile Movie is BACK!

August 2011’s AF-Calgary Fellow Matt Hamel and winning project YYC Mobile Movie is back again this year with a FREE outdoor showing of The Goonies on the side of the historic Simmons Building in Calgary’s East Village.

Timed to coincide with this year’s Cyclepalooza, this month’s free viewing of The Goonies will take place on Saturday, June 30 after the East Village Glow & Show, where Calgarians are encouraged to show up at 9 p.m. to ride their bikes along the RiverWalk to the Peace Bridge and back again, armed with glow sticks and more, and then stick around for the free movie.

Like last year’s free outdoor viewing of Casablanca, The Goonies will be projected onto the side of the Simmons Building right after the Glow & Show, but will be proceeded first by the premiere of a 15 minute short by our friends over at Hidden Story Productions (and created by AF-Calgary’s September 2011 co-winner Chris Hsuing) entitled Powered by the People, which will be entirely powered by bicycle generation.  It’s anticipated that everything should begin around 10 p.m.

So bring your bike, a blanket and a lawn chair and enjoy another FREE movie under the stars courtesy of Matt Hamel’s YYC Mobile Movie.

And a reminder:  This month’s Awesome Calgary Thousand Dollar Thursday takes place this Thursday, June 28 at Melrose Bar & Grill.  Doors open at 6 p.m. and we hope to see you there!
