The 1988 film “The Great Outdoors,” isn’t exactly a disaster movie in the classic, terrifying sense, but more in the comedic, things-get-weird sense—nevertheless, Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) and Paul Davis Restoration are sponsoring a free showing of this movie as part of CRESA’s Disaster Movie Nights series. The movie will be shown at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15, at the Kiggins Theatre. Doors open at 6 p.m. and there will be door prizes and other fun!
Disaster Movie Nights are hosted by CRESA to raise awareness about disaster preparedness…while having a bit of fun and munching on really good hot buttered popcorn. CRESA will be on hand before and after the moving to talk about the hazards of living in Clark County (overdosing on natural Northwest beauty?) and what we can do to be ready should the worst happen (or if we happen to go camping with people we don’t like). In case you didn’t see The Great Outdoors the first time around, here’s a recap:
Big-hearted Chicago family man Chet (John Candy) wants nothing more than to take his family to a lakeside resort area woods for a peaceful vacation, even though his wife and kids aren’t quite as excited as he is about roughing it. But the tranquility is shattered when his annoying in-laws (led by Dan Aykroyd) show up unexpected.
The Kiggins Theatre is located at 1011 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. For more information, visit www.kigginstheatre.net.
