Optimum Sponsors Movie Nights in Van Cortlandt Park
Optimum sponsors Van Cortlandt Park’s first ever series of movie nights on the world-famous Parade Ground, located on Broadway and West 240th Street in the Bronx.
Dates and movie titles include:
• July 14 - Little Shop of Horrors (1986)
• July 28 - Jaws (1975)
• August 4 - The Birds (1963)
• August 11 - Jurassic Park (1993)
On each date, in addition to the FREE movie screening, Optimum and Van Cortlandt Park Alliance (VCPA) will offer a variety of activities. There will be a Nature Nerds science table as well as an art-making activity to complement each ﬁlm. Guest artists will encourage creativity with hands-on art projects focusing on carnivorous plants, birds, sharks, and dinosaurs. Little Shop of Horrors’ tongue-in-cheek story of a crazed carnivorous plant opens an opportunity for our skilled educators to introduce children to real Venus ﬂytraps and pitcher plants. Finally, get ready to boogie as a deejay plays a variety of hits from the year of the corresponding movie.
Arrive by 7:30p, movies begin at last light of the day (8:30p – 9:00p).
