Astoria park is site of free family movies

Friday, August 10, 2018

Astoria Parks and Recreation Department has organized three free family movies in the park.

The annual tradition provides an opportunity to experience cinematic magic in an outdoor setting.

Movies are on Wednesdays and begin at dusk in Fred Lindstrom Memorial Park, Sixth and Niagara streets.

Last Wednesday, participants saw “A Wrinkle in Time,” sponsored by Arbor Care.

Future movies are:

Aug. 15, “Peter Rabbit,” sponsored by Clatsop Power Equipment, Gimre’s Shoes, Aquafina and Astoria Mini Mart.

Aug. 22, “Coco,” sponsored by Recology.

The movies are projected onto a giant inflatable screen after sundown, approximately 8:30 p.m. Moviegoers should bring a blanket or low-back chairs.

Arrive early to grab a great seat, as the park fills up with an average attendance of 200 to 400 per event.
