Each movie will begin at 9 p.m. and will be shown on a large, inflatable screen. Healthy Kids Community Challenge will be at each event with fun activities and information on healthy snack choices for kids. Viewers are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.

All movie screenings are free thanks to Tim Hortons Burlington stores that sponsor Movies under the Stars.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
