The Department of Community Program’s award-winning outdoor film series “Screen on the Green” returns for the 2013 season TONIGHT with their first film, “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”. Come out to see a “World Famous” magician and join in on the Family Dance Party, both contributing to a night of wonder, entertainment and fun for the whole family. This evening is made possible by donations from fabulous local sponsors Volvo, Investors Bank, Shaping Summit Together and the Summit Area YMCA.
Screen on the Green debuted in the summer of 2011 with family-friendly films and Family Dance Parties held on Thursdays throughout July and August on the Village Green. Mike Fusco of Summit Soundz, who is often joined by special guest “celebrities” Shark Diddy and McMuni, plays tunes to get the crowd movin’and groovin’. The screening of the movie follows on a huge 36' x 24' outdoor movie screen with cinema sound and the projection clarity of today's best BluRay players. The Department of Community Programs describes it as “this generation's version of a drive-in movie”.
Due to its success and recognition, Screen on the Green comes back strong in 2013 featuring the children’s favorites “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”, “Toy Story” and “Rise of the Guardians”, and ending with a special “Date Night” screening of “Somewhere in Time”. For the last night of the series, the DCP encourages couples to come out and enjoy a romantic film under the stars.
Special to the movie nights, Summit’s Sweet Nothings will provide a sweet raffle prize along with the DCP’s own basket giveaway. New to this year’s events is the Pizza Vita Food Court, where freshly-made pizza and beverages are available right out of the vendor’s custom food truck! Come hungry and enjoy the show!
Blankets, chairs and picnics welcome!
