The Clova Cinema had its final Saturday movie night on July 26.

With the business closing in a few days, there are only a few more chances to visit one of the last 35mm film projection movie theatres in the region.

Playing until July 31 are Tammy (7 p.m.) and Jersey Boys (8:55 p.m.) On Friday, Aug. 1 at 9 p.m., the Clova kicks off its End of an Era Final Weekend extravaganza with a screening of the ultimate cult movie – The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Costumes and props encouraged (prop bags will be available for sale at the door). Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

The Clova presents the second-annual Amazing Race Cloverdale on Aug. 2. The challenge promises to be bigger and better than last year’s inaugural event.

This time, however, teams will need a car to compete. The race works a little like a scavenger hunt, with teams receiving a list of check-in locations where they’ll be asked to answer a trivia question before getting the go-ahead to proceed to their next destination.

Register at 12 p.m. It’s $10 for adults, $5 for kids under 12 to take part.

The Clova says adieu after 67 years with a live performance by ABRA Cadabra, a tribute to the music of ABBA, taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 2. Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for kids 12 and under.

Sunday, Aug. 3 is The Great Clova Auction.

Bid on a part of Cloverdale history starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Clova, 5732 176 St. Tickets for all events are on sale now at the box office, any time it’s open.
