The people of Candler Park have spoken! The polls are closed and the winner of the September 8 viewer’s choice movie is Back To The Future! Some of you may be thinking, who has not seen this movie? But have you seen Back to the Future’s digitally re-mastered High Definition twenty-fifth anniversary version on BluRay on a three story screen under the stars in Candler Park’s natural amphitheater??? I don’t think so.
Before the movie starts on September 8, there will be awesome pre-movie activities starting at 6:30 pm, put on by our friends at the Mary Lin PTA! They’ll be helping us get in the groove of the movie’s era with swingin’ 50s music, a hula hoop contest, limbo, a “Back”wards (get it?) running contest, and a bunch of great prizes. Kids – wear your poodle skirt, rockabilly clothes, bowling shirts or whatever signals “I’m back from the 50s” – best outfit wins a prize!
Also on September 22, we will be showing Dolphin Tale. The film is inspired by the true story of Winter, a bottlenose dolphin that was rescued off the coast of Florida after losing part of his tail after becoming entangled with a rope attached to a crab trap and was fitted with a prosthetic one. We are excited to have joining us for our pre movie festivities will be long time neighbor Don Bender. He and the DOLPHIN PROJECT have developed a power point program featuring photography, graphics, sounds and videos to educate the public about the wild estuarine Bottlenose dolphins. The program focuses on dolphin anatomy, habits, behaviors, threats and research. The production also includes information about the environment which humans and dolphins share and how we can help protect it. www.thedolphinproject.org
So September 8th and 22nd come down to Candler Park in front of the pool house to have dinner, and see a great movie with your neighbors. This is all in addition to the usual music kids dancing mania that typically starts off movie night in Candler Park.
Candler Park Movie Night festivities start at 6:30 pm and the feature presentation will go on around 8:00 (sunset) in front of the pool house. You will want to get there early for the best spot!
Once again, well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome. Bring your own coolers but be aware that GLASS containers or bottles are strictly forbidden in city parks.
