(Via Marketwired) Thunder Bay is the latest place to be treated to a free drive-in movie courtesy of Fountain Tire. The family-friendly film will be screened on July 21st, across the street from the Port Arthur baseball stadium, as soon as it’s dark enough — which they figure for about 10:00 PM. If anyone’s wondering what to do till then, Fountain Tire says “movie goers are encouraged to attend the Thunder Bay Border Cats ball game being held that day prior to the film.”
