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.
Activity: A faux garbage scavenger hunt with toys and candy hidden around Compass Park. Free recycling and compost information will also be given out.
The Princess Bride
Activity: Fairytale book giveaway with local bookstore, Between the Covers.
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.
Kung Fu Panda
Activity: Show us your best Ninja/Karate moves for prize giveaways.
All the movies are very all-ages-appropriate except "Twilight", which is rated PG-13 (though not bad).
