Jewel Theatre screens Lego Batman, draws 450-strong audience

The movie ‘Lego Batman’ had the Stettler community engaged over the long Family Day weekend.

The movie ‘Lego Batman’ had the Stettler community engaged over the long Family Day weekend as they attended the afternoon or evening shows, participating in the various activities and competitions that were being held in conjunction with the screening.

By Monday afternoon, there had been 480 people who had watched the show.

“The brains behind our Lego Batman week were the two owners, Byron and Sonya and our resident decorator Bonnie Lynn,” said Rose Chapman, general manager. “Sonya got the idea from a theatre patron only six days before the movie arrived, and we all got to work all week getting supplies, building props and sets and costumes, transforming the theatre into a Batman-themed space.”

Byron Geddes made the jailhouse for kids to take pictures in and the incredible Lego Batman costume that he wore all weekend long to excite and scare kids and grown-ups alike, said Chapman.

“We also had special Batman cookies made up by Samantha Huskinson for the kids,” Chapman added. “We had games set up around the lobby and inside the auditorium for kids to play on their own, some games had little super hero prizes they could win.”

The Jewel Theatre also held a Lego building contest for kids of three age categories under four, five to seven years old and eight to ten.

“They brought in their own creations and the movie goers had to vote the winner in each category,” Chapman explained. “One avid fan, Cole Shuckburgh created a whole Jewel Theatre equipped with super heroes fighting on the roof while movie goers watched a show inside.!”

According to Chapman, who was dressed as the Joker, the kids had a lot of fun and she enjoyed watching them react to her and the Batman.

“Some would thought he was just a statue, then he would move and say something and they’d jump and scream even some grown-ups were caught off guard,” Chapman said. “Some kids were scared and would not even look at him, some tried to beat him up and others gave him a big hug, it was all very cute.”

Chapman said she would like to thank Byron and Sonya Geddes, Bonnie Lynn and Samantha Huskinson for their help with this last-minute event, and to all the staff members who worked so hard this weekend.
