On behalf of the Dept. of Recreation, enjoy some outdoor movie screenings!
Finding something fun – and free- to bring the children to during the summer is never easy. However, the Montclair Department of Recreation is offering three family-friendly movie nights that are free and open to the public! The Montclair Department of Recreation will host a total of three free outdoor movie screenings of popular movies this summer in June and July. Two of the outdoor movie screenings will be “flick and float” nights, with one held at Mountainside Pool and the second at Nishuane Pool, to allow movie-goers to cool off in the pool while the movies are playing.
The first outdoor movie screening is coming up on Friday, June 26 at Edgemont Park, where Alexander and the Terrible No Good Very Bad Day will be screened at 8:30 p.m. The next two movies will be Flick and Float movies in July. The first will be on Friday, July 10 at Mountainside Pool showing Dolphin Tale 2 at 8:45 p.m., and the pool will remain open until 8:30 p.m. The second Flick and Float screening will be on Friday, July 24 at the Nishuane Pool, showing Earth to Echo at 8:45 p.m., and the pool will remain open until 8:30 p.m.
