VICTORIA -- The University of Victoria (UVic) is holding a limited run of drive-in movie events this week.

Three movies will be screened over three nights, on June 4, 5 and 6.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to support our students and look forward to working with [organizer] Legacy Drive-In Cinema,” said Jane Potentier, UVic associate vice-president of alumni and development.

“This is a great example of entrepreneurship meeting community need during the COVID crisis.”
