Munch and Movies

Munch and Movies starts this Friday (August 21st)—the food and free movies in the park event that is a companion to the earlier Munch and Music. Every Friday from August 21st through September 11th in Compass Park (in Northwest Crossing), a different movie will be playing at dusk. Here’s their blurb:

The event officially starts at 6:00pm with live performances by local musicians – with each night featuring a different musical guest who will double as the MC for the evening. Movies will begin at dusk and there will be a brief intermission. There will be dinner food, dessert, and kettle korn available from one of many restaurants on site.

Be sure to come early to find a good parking spot, and bring a coat as the nights can get chilly. We also recommend you bring a blanket to sit on or a low-backed chair, so it does not block the view of other moviegoers.

They don’t post a schedule of movies on the site for some reason, but you can sign up to have them emailed to you. This is a pain, so I signed up for the schedule just so I could post it here:

Each movie will have a theme with different attire and different activities along with competitions and drawings.

Aug 21
Attire: Green
Activity: A faux garbage scavenger hunt with toys and candy hidden around Compass Park. Free recycling and compost information will also be given out.

Aug 28
The Princess Bride
Attire: Pajamas
Activity: Fairytale book giveaway with local bookstore, Between the Covers.

Sept 4
Attire: Vampire
Activity: Dress up in vampire attire and sign up to win Twilight goodies for the Best Vampire. Glow-in-the-dark vampire fangs will be given out to the first 500 people.

Sept 11

All the movies are very all-ages-appropriate except "Twilight", which is rated PG-13 (though not bad).

  1. I remember talking to Cameron of C3 before and he said that there was some legal restriction or a contractual reason for not listing the movies.

  2. The high school robotics team, The High Desert Droids, will be there tonight with last year’s robot. Always a great inspiration for younger kids…and the team needs the support from the community!
