Friday's Movie Nights on the Waterfront, screening Moana in Marina Park is cancelled due to poor weather.

Officials at the City of Thunder Bay released a written notice on Friday late afternoon saying production crews are unable to set up safely for tonight's event "due to poor weather and unfavourable ground conditions."

Saturday's feature film will still be screened, as scheduled, with the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 expected to play at around 9:30 p.m.

Organizers are encouraging movie-goers to bring blankets or lawn chairs to help them enjoy the free movies on the big screen.

They are advising people to get to the park early to grab a good seat and visit the event sponsors, local community groups and the craft and activity stations.
