Movie at the Park

The District of Vanderhoof is sponsoring a free showing of the movie "Up" in Ferland Park on Aug. 12.

Get ready for a “Movie in the Park” on Wednesday, Aug. 12, when the District of Vanderhoof is sponsoring a showing of the animated film Up. The movie is being shown at Ferland Park, and admission is free, with popcorn available by donation. Bring chairs or blankets and be at the park at 8:30 pm to enjoy the film, which is suitable for the entire family.

Up tells the story of two children who idolize a famous explorer, and vow to travel to Paradise Falls, the site of one of the explorer’s most famous discoveries. The children eventually marry and grow old together, but are constantly frustrated in their attempts to get to Paradise Falls. It’s many years before Carl, the husband, manages to accomplish the journey; and when he does so, it’s by a very unconventional method. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture—only the second animated film ever to be nominated for that award.
