Three of Calgary’s biggest attractions are once again open after staying dormant during the height of COVID-19.

Telus Spark, the Glenbow Museum and Studio Bell are all open this month.

Telus Spark has partnered with Big Art to put on drive-in movie nights all month long beginning August 5.

The price is broken down by car, with a maximum of five people per vehicle.

Prices range from $29-$40 for one movie depending on whether you’re a Telus Spark member or not.

You also have the choice of staying for a double feature, which ranges from $50-$60.

The movies range from popular children’s films like the Lorax and Gremlins, to classic thrillers including Jaws and Jurassic Park.

The drive-in experience is meant to be like no other, including surround sound and explosions for a truly immersive experience. 

“Real EXPLOSIONS and DIRT BIKES will surround you at the DRIVE IN as B!G ART brings you B!G C!NEMA – a movie experience that’ll blow your mind. As the film plays on the big screen, prepare to stay strapped into your seatbelt as wild action brings the parking lot to life around you,”  reads the Telus Spark site.

Many of the movies are sold-out already, but Spark plans to add more for the second half of August so make sure to keep an eye out.

Arts and culture for the whole family

The Glenbow museum welcomed visitors back in starting on Aug. 3.

There are currently six temporary exhibits on display including Metamorphosis, a collection of contemporary Canadian portraits and work by Canadian artist Maxwell Bates. 

The museum also features seven permanent exhibits from animals to ancient symbols. 

The Glenbow Museum, which has been around for 54 years, is a great place to bring the kids for an educational day out.

In order to visit the museum, timed tickets are required to ensure physical distancing.

Adult tickets are $19 and children under six are free. 

To comply with the recent mask by-law, masks are required inside the museum.
