Members of the public attending the Moonlight Movie night tomorrow, Saturday, March 9, at the Gall Hill Hard Court, Gall Hill, St. John, beginning at 7:00 p.m. are reminded that they should walk with chairs and blankets.
The feature film for the evening will be The Impossible, a true story of an American family of five vacationing at a resort in Thailand when the 2004 Southeast Asian tsunami, with 98-foot waves, crashed over their hotel separating them from each other and killing thousands of people. This movie is rated PG-13.
Immediately following the film there will be an opportunity for those attending to ask questions and be involved in a discussion on Barbados’ preparedness for the possibility of a tsunami and how they may participate in those efforts.
The movie night is being organised by the Public Awareness and Education sub-committee of the Preparedness, Readiness and Resilience working group Technical Standing Committee on Coastal Hazards, which was approved by Cabinet as part of ongoing efforts to raise awareness about the island’s vulnerabilities to such disasters.
Snacks and drinks will be on sale.
