Little Falls Presents Outdoor Movie Nights at the Sports and Recreation Complex

Little Falls Township is running its Outdoor Movie Night program this summer with five nights of popular movies. The movie nights will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m.  through Aug. 25. The films begin at dusk.

According to Councilman Al Kahwaty, the movies will be shown at the newly installed turf field at the Little Falls Sports and Recreation Complex, located at 160 Paterson Ave.  He said it's a great opportunity for residents who are not athletes to enjoy the turf field with a lesser chance of being bitten by insects.

"Last year we hosted it for three nights and it was a big success," Kahwaty explained. "This year we're doing five nights. We used to show them at Memorial Park on Wilmore Road but having it at the turf field gives us a chance to move it indoors just in case of inclement weather."

Kahwaty has been involved with the movie nights since 2019 with the help of Councilwoman Christine Hablitz. 

 "We have a lot of fun planning this each year, coming up with new films and ways to make the nights fun," he added.

Hablitz agreed, adding that this year's movie night is bigger and better with movie choices for all ages.

"I love bringing more activities to our community," she explained.

Kahwaty said the addition of themed evenings is new, such as Christmas in July with the running of "Elf" on July 28 and Halloween in August with "Beetlejuice" on Aug. 4.  Requests for other movie classics from residents resulted in "Jaws" scheduled for Aug. 11 and "Zootopia" scheduled for Aug. 18. The movie collection will wrap-up with "Star Wars: A New Hope" on Aug. 25.

"Jaws was highly requested," added Kahwaty,  "Little Falls Police Department Corporal Jon Vanak is a big part of all the activities we run in town, so this year we asked him to select a movie and he chose Zootopia. It's actually the week of his birthday that it's being run, so it's nice that's happening."

Kahwaty also said the idea is for the event to be primarily family focused but not strictly targeted to younger children.

"We want parents and their older children to also enjoy the movie, maybe even their teenagers, so they all can have a nice night out together," he emphasized. "We're trying to appeal to a wide demographic and not just a narrow age five times in a row."
