Outdoor movie nights this summer at the 3-Eh stage

Enjoy a family-friendly movie on a 17-foot inflatable screen under the stars

“We’re bored!”

“There’s nothing to do!”

“Can we go back to school now??”

Okay, so maybe not the last one, but do the first two sound familiar? It’s only the beginning of July, and the kids are already bored out of their minds, driving you, and themselves, nuts. Making messes at home. Eating everything in sight. Do not despair! The solution is here!

AM Event Coordination will be hosting four outdoor movie nights this summer at the 3-Eh stage behind the Ramada in Creston. Imagine what a hero you will be to your kids when you tell them to gather up the picnic blankets, lawn chairs, and bug spray because you’re all heading out to enjoy a family-friendly movie on a 17-foot inflatable screen under the stars! Disney’s The Lion King will be showing on screen on July 12th. The movie starts at sundown! And if you’re looking to fill some of your kids’ time during the day, you can book a time at the Art Barn, during which they can paint and decorate a CARdboard box car that they can sit in while they watch the movie (ages 5+)!!

I have so many amazing memories of loading into my parents’ car, pajamas on, the backseat full of blankets, bags of chips and our favorite teddy bears, and heading out to the local drive-in to watch a family movie and then to try to stay awake during the PG-13 film that followed. I don’t think I ever managed to stay up through both films. And while drive-ins don’t seem to exist anymore the way they once did, I would love to help create new memories for kids in this community of bundling into pyjamas after supper, packing up blankets, some snacks and a favorite toy, and spending a summer evening outside, falling in love with some of those favorite films for the first time, or the hundred and first time. These movies aren’t just for kids, I invite everyone to come to watch an old favorite. July 12th you can sing along to “Hakuna Matata” in the African savannah, or maybe you’d rather hop in the old DeLorean and travel through time on July 26th? Or go “to infinity and beyond” on August 9th? If none of that takes you down memory lane, then you’re invited to suggest a film for the fourth and final showing of the summer, and maybe win a prize pack to bring your family down to watch your favorite family-friendly film on the big inflatable screen! Watch for contest details on Facebook and at AMEventCoordination.com.

So bring a blanket, bring a chair, grab some snacks, and come on over to the 3-Eh stage (behind the Ramada) to enjoy Disney’s The Lion King on Thursday, July 12th. The show begins at sundown. Tickets are available at online or at the gate. I can’t wait to see you at the show!!
