On Monday, October 14, 2019, NCM held its fourth annual Theatre Party in Charlevoix. From 5:30 pm to 6:45 pm, people enjoyed delicious appetizers at the Weathervane Restaurant. Wonderful door prizes were provided by local merchants and companies. And, there was a 50/50 raffle as well. At 6:45 pm, everyone went to the Charlevoix Cinema and was able to choose seeing one of the three movies that was playing. Of the three movies playing, most of the people went to see Downton Abbey. There were a few, however, who chose to see Joker, and another handful that went to see The Addams Family. All of this was for the low price of $25 per ticket.

Due to COVID-19, NCM cancelled its Charlevoix Theatre Party scheduled for Monday, October 12, 2020. Because of the uncertainty, NCM has also cancelled its Charlevoix Theatre Party scheduled for October 11, 2021.
