You’re in for a Canadian cinematic treat at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum: Canada’s Drive-In.

From the comfort of their cars, movie-goers will witness a state-of-the-art outdoor projection of THE ROCKET, an award-winning Canadian film about hockey legend Maurice Richard. The aviation hangar wall will be transformed into a giant screen for this inventive outdoor installation.

This event, under Ottawa 2017’s Ignite 150 program, will begin at 6:15 p.m. with pre-show entertainment and will feature a chat with the director of THE ROCKET, Charles Binamé (movie starts at 8 p.m.).

Hockey fans won’t want to miss the meet and greet autograph session with Montreal Canadiens hockey greats Serge Savard and Jean-Guy Talbot. The Habs veterans, one of whom was a teammate of Maurice Richard and the other who was president of the Maurice Richard Foundation, won a combined 15 Stanley Cup® Championships.
