Huron County, ON – The fun of watching a free movie outside comes to Goderich’s Courthouse Square on July 20.
Families are invited to come to Courthouse Square Park and watch Despicable Me 3. In this popular animated children’s comedy, Gru teams up with his long-lost twin brother Dru to defeat their new enemy, Balthazar Bratt.
The movie is part of a tobacco-free event which includes activities, games and trivia to promote tobacco-free living. Activities begin at 7 p.m. and the movie begins at dusk. Please bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on.
This family-oriented event brings attention to the role of media messaging in tobacco use.
“Movies remain one of the last places that the tobacco industry can advertise to youth,” says Jacqueline Uprichard, public health promoter with the Huron County Health Unit. “Our efforts aim to get tobacco imagery out of youth-rated movies.”
At the event, Huron County Health Unit staff and students will be addressing the issue of smoking in movies rated for children and the effects that these movies may have.
The rain date for the smoke-free movie night is July 27 at the Courthouse Square Park.
This event is hosted by the Goderich Business Improvement Area in partnership with the Huron County Health Unit and the municipality of Goderich.
