The Noblesville Parks Department invites residents to enjoy outdoor movies together as a family at five city parks this summer. The 13th annual Movies in the Park Series has something for all ages to enjoy – from fun adventures to foreign lands to talkative animals and iconic personalities.
Erin Portman, recreation program coordinator joined us today with what you need to know about the movie nights.
“The Movies in the Park Series has been an ongoing tradition in Noblesville for over a decade. Attendees can enjoy family-friendly movies, bring a blanket, their dinner or snacks and enjoy an evening of cinema at Noblesville’s parks. Instead of one location for the movie series, this year we are bringing the movies to various parks across the city in order to give residents an opportunity to enjoy them closer to home,” Recreation Program Coordinator Erin Portman said.
To kick off the series, the Noblesville Parks Department is partnering with the Forest Park Aquatic Center, 1077 Cicero Road, to host two Flick ’N Float events, which include “The Shallows” on Aug. 14 for a 21 and over crowd and “Lilo & Stitch” on Aug. 21 for all ages. The movies will start at dusk and will be shown on the pool deck while attendees view the movie from the pool. Pool admission after 5 p.m. is $4 and food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Friday, Aug. 21 – Flick ‘N Float featuring Lilo & Stitch (PG, 85 min.).
The remaining movies in the series will be shown at various city parks the next four weeks. Movies will begin at dusk and are free to the public. This year’s schedule includes:
Friday, Aug. 28 – Jumanji 2: Next Level (PG-13, 123 min.) at Finch Creek Park, 16233 Boden Road.
Friday, Sept. 4 – Frozen 2 (PG, 103 min.) at Dillon Park, 6351 Midland Lane.
Friday, Sept. 11 – Dolittle (PG, 101 min.) at Federal Hill Commons, 175 Logan Street.
Friday, Sept. 18 – A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (PG, 109 min.) at Southside Park, 396 Washington Street.
CDC social distancing guidelines will remain in place during the movie series. Attendees are asked to keep a distance of six feet from others. Screen setup at each park will allow space for attendees to spread out and enjoy the films. Per Governor Holcomb’s statewide mask mandate, masks are required (for ages 8 and older) in indoor public spaces or in outside public spaces when it is not possible to socially distance. Masks are strongly recommended for ages 2-7. The City of Noblesville follows the Governor’s Back on Track plan and will continue monitoring for any changes that could impact future events or the movie series.
In the event of rain, movies may be rescheduled or moved inside Ivy Tech Community College, 300 N. 17 St. Light concessions will be available for purchase at all showings. The 2020 Movies in the Park Series is made possible through the contributions of Logan Street Signs & Banners and Urban Air Adventure Park.
