Theatre Under the Stars is coming back to Eagle Ranch Resort with a film that is sure to thrill superhero junkies.

On August 19th, Eagle Ranch will host a free outdoor screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the food bank.

Obviously, the big winner of this is the Columbia Valley Food Bank, said Eric Thorsteinson, the resorts general manager. We collected an entire half-ton truck full of non-perishable food items during our screening of Cinderella on July 22nd.

At the Cinderella screening, 400 eager visitors, including a few young princesses in their fanciest dresses, flocked to Eagle Ranch to catch the film. This time, Mr. Thorsteinson said he is hoping to see over 600 moviegoers.

We are moving more towards hospitality with our property, Mr. Thorsteinson said. We are not just a golf course, but a place where you can watch movies and listen to live music.

On the 19th, guests can also partake in a buffet pasta dinner, allowing them to enjoy the movie from Eagle Ranchs spacious balcony (see ad on page 12).

If movie nights continue to be very popular, Mr. Thorsteinson said the resort will look to expand their programming to bring a variety of guests to the property.

It certainly brings out people to the property who may not golf, he said. In 2016, we are looking to have a big band play in August.
