YK is getting a drive-in movie! Here’s how to reserve your spot


Cabin Radio and friends bring you a pop-up Yellowknife drive-in movie theatre on Friday, May 8. Places are limited – here’s how to get yours.

Watch Mornings at the Webcam on Cabin Radio’s Facebook page from 8am until 8:40am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week.

We’ll be giving away 10 vehicle spaces live on each morning show. You just have to be watching for a chance to win!

Remaining spaces will be awarded by the City of Yellowknife via its Facebook page. Make sure you check out the City if you have no luck in our four shows.

So what’s showing, where, and when? Here’s how it works.

Movie night is Friday May 8 at 11:30pm in the parking lot between the Multiplex and Fieldhouse. The Fieldhouse’s white wall is our screen!

Why so late? Because it’s so light outside – we need to start late to give the projectionist a chance. We recommend a pre-movie nap earlier that evening.

Parking opens: 10:30pm
Movie begins: 11:30pm
Last vehicle entry: 12 midnight

Entry is by donation. We’ll have the option available for you to donate on entry to the Multiplex and Fieldhouse parking lot. Donations will go to a Yellowknife-based charity, details to follow.

What are we watching? There’s a shortlist of three: Hook, Jurassic Park, or Groundhog Day. Stay tuned for our poll to decide the winner coming up this week.

You must have a reserved space to attend! Spaces are won by tuning in to Mornings at the Webcam or via the City of Yellowknife’s Facebook page.
