Families looking for a fun, free activity didn't have to look far on Saturday, Dec. 16. That afternoon was the Kinsmen Club of Drumheller's annual free Christmas movie.
Kinsmen Club member Grant Daly explained that the movie idea was a way to get people out of their houses and into the community during the Christmas season.
"We were looking a good way to get the community out and about and everybody hanging out in one place and some common ground for families. So, we decided to do a Christmas movie annually. This is our third year bringing it to Drumheller and, once again, great attendance."
Last year's film was 'The Polar Express' featuring the voice of Tom Hanks. This year, they went with a more recent movie that's quickly become a fan-favourite.
"We did 'Frozen' this year," said Daly. "It was picked by Kinsmen Don Peterson. His grand-daughters really liked it, so that's the one we went with."
In order to put on free events for the community, the Kinsmen Club fundraises throughout the year.
"So, we do fundraisers and stuff like that. So, anytime you see us out doing pancake breakfasts, those donations go to stuff like [free movies]."
Daly says the group's fundraising and activities are done for 2017, but that they look forward to 2018.
