NORTH BRANCH, NJ - Pack a picnic basket, put the kids in their pajamas, pile everyone into the DeSoto (or the minivan), and head over to Duke Island Park on Old York Road in Bridgewater for the Somerset County Park Commission Drive-In Movies. Take the family back in time with drive-in movies just like in the 50's - complete with large screen. Admission is free.  Refreshments will be available.
 
The 18th annual family event is scheduled for two consecutive Fridays, July 21 and July 28, 2017 with the show beginning at 8:30 P.M. each night. The films will be presented under the stars on a big screen in the Duke Island Park Band Shell. 
 
July 21 – Trolls - PG
From the creators of Shrek comes a smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy, DreamWorks' Trolls. Enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.
 
 
July 28 – The Boss Baby - PG
Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always been a boy of an overactive imagination, and for the past seven years, life was all peaches for him, getting all the love and affection from his caring parents. However, life will never be the same and Tim won't be the center of attention anymore as the arrival of an improbable new brother named Boss Baby, dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase, will shortly rob him of all love, as he takes over the whole Templetons' house.
 
Families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, for an enjoyable evening of family entertainment under the stars. A call to 908-722-1200, ext. 351 will provide weather updates during the evening prior to the show.
