The curtain goes up once again on Highland Park Outdoor Movies. Save the date SATURDAY MAY 15 for opening night in the Highland Park Outdoor Movie Theater. The first presentation of the season is WATERSHIP DOWN. Vintage cartoons begin at dusk. Feature presentation is at 9 p.m. In addition to being family friendly, the movie series is financially friendly – it is free.
Released in 1978, this British animated adaptation of Richard Adams’s bestselling novel tells a tale of a colony of rabbits searching for a new home. The rabbits exist in real-world southern England, but Adams imbues them with intelligence, language, and a rich mythology worthy of Tolkien. Seen from a rabbit’s point of view, the world is a harrowing place replete with predators and danger — all of which is conveyed beautifully – and nail-bitingly – in the film. So please join us for our opening night – it’s going to be a wonderful summer of outdoor movies!
Reservations are no longer required, but we ask that attendees wear a mask and please keep up the social distancing. We will have chairs set up for the screening, but please feel free to bring your own chairs or blankets. See you there, friends!
