2015 Outdoor Movies in Halifax and Dartmouth

Over the past few years there has been a huge surge in demand for outdoor movies, but who can blame us, what better way to spend a summer evening than taking the big screen outdoors? 

Bring a blanket or lawn chair, dress warm (we may be having a hot summer but the nights still get cool!), and of course don't forget the popcorn.

This item should read "2015 Outdoor Movies in Dartmouth and Halifax". I've asked the administrators to revise this. I will be attending the movies in Dartmouth. Where is the "Pondside Amphitheatre"? Is that Sullivan's Pond?

It says they begin at dusk so probably around 9 or so! Best to get there early for parking and a good seat!

My only comment is will it be close captioned? With a large Deaf community in HRM it would be considerate. I would love to go see the movies but my wife is Deaf and if it's not CC we both miss out.
