Surrey's Holland Park will once again be turned into an outdoor movie theatre on Saturdays this August.

For the 10th year, Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association will present Movies Under the Stars beginning Aug. 2.

The first movie to hit the screen will be the animated, minion-filled hit Despicable Me 2. Attendees are encouraged to dress like minions (yellow shirts and jean shorts) as organizers attempt to beat a world record for most minions in one place.

The free movies start at dusk, but entertainment and other activities kick off at 5 p.m. This weekend, Derrick Fedele, Jr. Talent winners and Zox of the Forest will perform. A barbecue will also be provided by North Surrey Lions Club.

Future movie nights will take place Aug. 9, 16 and 23, with movies to be announced.

Holland Park is located at 13428 Old Yale Rd.
