SmokeFree Movie Night in Pinafore Park to Feature The Jungle Book

St. Thomas, Ontario - The City of St. Thomas and Elgin St. Thomas Public Health invite families to the bandshell at Pinafore Park this Saturday, August 20th, for a free screening of Disney’s The Jungle Book. In July more than 700 people attended the Smoke-Free Movie Night at Pinafore Park, so families are encouraged to arrive early and bring their lawn chairs and blankets. The movie gets underway at dusk.

This marks the 3rd straight year that the Health Unit and the City of St. Thomas have partnered with The Lung Association and Ontario Coalition for Smoke-Free Movies to offer this event. Evidence shows that when children and youth see smoking in movies, they are more likely to start smoking which is why it’s critical to remove smoking and tobacco use from youth-rated movies. Event participants will have the opportunity to encourage the Ontario Film Review Board to assign an adult rating of 18A to all new movies containing tobacco, by signing a petition.

"The percentage of people smoking in movies is greater than the percentage of the population that actually smokes. We know that when kids see tobacco use on-screen, it increases the risk they’ll start to smoke," says Leigh Ann Darling, Health Promoter, Elgin St. Thomas Public Health.

The Smoke-Free Movie Night will start at dusk.

The current forecast for Saturday calls for sunny skies throughout the day and an evening temperature of 20°C. In the case of poor weather, event cancellation information will be posted on the Elgin St. Thomas Public Health Facebook page.
