The Aquarium of Niagara is turning its parking lot, between Third and Whirlpool streets, into a drive-in movie for one night, complete with popcorn, soft drinks, ice cream and hot dogs, available for purchase. And, of course, a couple of popular movies the whole family can enjoy. “Cirque du Cinema” is planned Friday, Aug. 22. Gates open at 6:30 p.m.

Films to be shown on a 20-foot outdoor screen include a recent comedy starring a veritable boat full of animals and humans, Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman, followed by the now classic tale of a giant shark that terrorizes a New England coastal village and its residents.

Before the movies begin and during intermission, there will be circus-like entertainment with prizes and surprises. This professionally produced production is a fund-raiser for the not-for-profit Aquarium. Admission is $20 per car with two occupants; $25 for a car with three or more occupants. Walk-ins are $5 and should bring their own chairs. Rain date is Saturday, Aug. 23. Time Warner Cable is sponsoring this night of film and fun.

For more information, contact Tracy at 285-3575, Ext. 206. Admission will be paid at the “drive-in” entrances.

What a great way to spend a Friday night in Niagara Falls. Bring the family, tell the neighbors, and come out to support the Aquarium. See ya there!
