Coastal Community brings back movies
under the stars with Sunset Cinema


Free outdoor movie event supports Young Entrepreneurs program

Looking for a fun free event on a warm summer evening for your family? In July, Coastal Community’s Sunset Cinema returns to a 3-story screen near you. Thousands of Islanders have enjoyed these outdoor movie nights over the past eight years. Don’t miss the chance to watch a free movie by the light of the stars at locations across the Island this summer.

This event is a great way for us to say thank you to Islanders for all their support and build community at the same time.
If this is your first time catching one of the flicks, remember the movie begins as soon as it’s dark, but you’ll want to arrive early to find a spot for your blankets, pillows or lawn chairs.

And if you want a few snacks, Coastal Community’s ATM-on-wheels, VanGo, will be available for anyone who needs cash (surcharge-free for Credit Union members). The concession stand sells popcorn, candy, pop, cotton candy, and glow sticks, all in support of Coastal Community’s Young Entrepreneurs program.

As you’ll see in the trailers before the movie, this exciting school-based initiative allows elementary students in classrooms across the Island to design their own business, developing their financial and money management skills while having a lot of fun. Last summer, Sunset Cinema raised over $10,000 to help kids explore the world of business!
