Ucluelet set for outdoor movie on Thursday

Black Rock Resort to host ‘Goonies’ under the stars at Tugwell Fields.

Locals and visitors can catch a classic 1980’s family film under the stars on Thursday.

Ucluelet’s Black Rock Resort is hosting an outdoor movie experience at Tugwell Fields on August 4 featuring Richard Donner and Steven Spielberg’s popular 1985 film The Goonies.

“I thought hosting the outdoor cinema would be an incredibly fun family event for the community and our visiting guests,” the resort’s general manager Brian Johnson told the Westerly News.

“It is a rare event when we can sit back in a natural green space outdoors under the starlight and enjoy a classic movie such as Goonies with friends and family.”

The movie will start at 9 p.m.

A concession will be set up and run by the Black Rock team and admission to the event will be by donation with partial proceeds going to Cops for Cancer.

Johnson suggested the all-ages family-friendly event could become an annual feature in Ucluelet.

“I am a huge movie lover and wanted to start a new annual local community event for all to enjoy.”
