Valparaiso Events Announces Summer Outdoor Movies

     Valparaiso Events’ Summer Outdoor Movies series premieres Tuesday, June 4th with a showing of the family favorite “Toy Story” at Central Park Plaza, home to Northwest Health Amphitheater, in downtown Valpo. The series runs every Tuesday evening from June 4th to July 2nd and features other family-friendly classics and a recent release—Wonka, Tangled, The
Greatest Showman, and The Sandlot. The movie will begin at 7:00 p.m. on a digital LED screen with pre-movie activities starting at 5:30 p.m.

     Moviegoers will delight in a beautiful outdoor summer evening with various free, family-friendly activities prior to the 7:00 p.m. showing. From meeting favorite movie characters to face painting, balloon twisting, and caricatures—there’s something for everyone to enjoy! The movie nights will also feature live music, themed décor, and photo ops. At “The Sandlot” showing on Tuesday, July 2nd, there will be a special appearance by Tom Guiry, the actor who played Scotty Smalls in everyone’s favorite baseball blockbuster.

     And what’s a movie without popcorn!? Free popcorn, courtesy of Valparaiso Baptist Church, will be available at 5:30 p.m. until supplies last. Additional treats will be available for purchase from Valpo Velvet and other various food vendors. Moviegoers are also encouraged to grab dinner to go from one of their favorite downtown restaurants and to bring a blanket and chairs for the lawn.
