Do you remember the days of drive in movies??  The fresh air, the open space.  Well we remember those days too and we are bringing the old time tradition back to Nutley.  The Department of Parks and Recreation is excited to announce Nutley’s return of “Movie Under the Stars”.  Similar to a drive in movie, spectators are welcome to bring a lawn chair or blanket and view a movie under the stars.  The movie is projected on a large blown up screen, which will be set in the Nutley Oval, located at 300 Franklin Ave.   Equipped with a brand new sound system, residents will enjoy this flick loud and clear.

The selection for 2018 is “COCO”.  Despite his family's baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.

“Our goal is to create a family environment for residents to come together and spend quality time with one another” stated Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci. Our youngsters learn about family values from the time they spend with their own.  Our  families are the single most important aspects of our lives but with the growing number of challenges we face when it comes to family time, whether it be our busy work schedules, increasing responsibilities or our children’s sport schedules, it is important we don’t forget to take time out to enjoy today. As recreation professionals we play an important role in molding some of the values that can gradually deteriorate within busy family schedules. By implementing and centering our efforts on family recreation we can be a tremendous positive force in our community.
