Popular Movie Night Returns to Milton


It’s Milton’s favourite long-running late summer attraction, and it’s back for the 2017 edition. 

Get your family and friends under the stars!

Kelso Conservation Area is hosting its popular outdoor movie series every Friday night until the Labour Day weekend, starting Aug. 11.

That’s when opening night kicks things off with a screening of Trolls.

Admission to the movie is included with the regular gate fees, while Halton Parks members can just show their pass to get in.

The event is running weekly from 8 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. at 5234 Kelso Rd.

Here’s the 2017 line-up, featuring four family films which will delight audiences of all ages:

  •   Aug. 11 - Trolls (2016)
  •   Aug. 18 - Finding Dory (2016)
  •   Aug. 25 - Pete’s Dragon (2016)
  •   Sept. 1 - Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Remember to pack the lawn chairs and blankets.

If you’re not the domestic type, not to worry — Kelso staff will be selling hot dogs, popcorn, snacks and drinks.

Shows start at dusk, approximately 15 to 20 minutes after sunset, weather permitting. 

Cancellation notices, likely due to weather, will be posted on the Conservation Halton site and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The site is located west of Tremaine Rd., north of Steeles Ave. and south of Hwy. 401. This 396-hectare park includes extensive forests, a dam and reservoir, as well as a popular beach. 

Residents and visitors are encouraged to start the weekend with the screening —  make a day of it with a trip to Kelso and a picnic dinner, or book a campsite and spend the night. 

More information on camping at Kelso can be found on the Halton Parks website.
