Why did you select these movies?
There are a few considerations that go into the selecting of these movies. The first is availability as we are limited to certain movies by our provider. We also choose movies that our team believe will be of interest to our diverse park visitors.
What happened to Movies in the Meadow, Movies Under the Stars, and Saturday Night Movies?
We like to keep things interesting, so we vary the way our programming is presenting. All of our movies will be playing on select Friday nights; we hope you can join us this summer!
