Family movie, pizza party hits new theatre

Arthur Christmas will play in the Dave Dunnet theatre at Oak Bay High Dec. 22

Pyjama movie night may set the pace for Recreation Oak Bay uses of the Dave Dunnet Community Theatre.

“We wanted to do something special for the holidays that was family friendly and affordable,” said Glenna Garramone, arts and culture programmer for Recreation Oak Bay. “We’ll be able to offer families something special to do.”

Pyjamas, pizza and a holiday movie seemed just the plan.

Arthur Christmas will play in the Oak Bay High theatre on Dec. 22. The pizza party – from Villages at $5 for a slice or $7 for two – is optional. Pyjamas are encouraged.

“I remember going to events like that when I was younger and I just loved wearing pyjamas out in public –  it was a rare treat,” Garramone said. “It also makes it easier for parents at that time of year, they can pop the kids in the car and they go to sleep.”

The G-rated, animated Arthur Christmas, reveals Santa’s ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole while Santa’s clumsy son (Arthur) has to sort out a misplaced present.

Tickets for the film are $3.50 for anyone older than five. Those younger than five must also register. Register in advance through reception at Oak Bay Recreation Centre, 1975 Bee St., or call 250-595-7946.

The pizza dinner starts at 6 p.m. with the movie at 6:30.  Dinner includes Villages Pizza, chocolate milk or juice and apple slices.
