Film fans: More Movies in the Park

Posted on Fri, Jun 2, 2006 at 11:51 AM

The Movies in the Park outdoor film series has proved popular enough that the River Market and the organizers have extended its regular season 10 more weeks, through Aug. 16. That will also coincide with the River Market District’s 10th Anniversary celebration f

estivities. The films will continue to be held every Wednesday, starting at dark, at the Riverfest Amphitheatre. The films are free, open to everyone and their dog, and everyone's encouraged to bring whatever they need to enjoy the film with (food, beverages), though beverages are also available for purchase.

In a press release issued moments ago, Movies in the Park coordinator Blake Rutherford said: “We wanted to be a part of the summer-long festivities that will be going on downtown throughout the next 10-weeks. What better way to be a part of the anniversary than to bring family and friends out to enjoy an evening in the heart of the district.”

Rutherford and his group of organizers, looking at the success of similar movie series in Kansas City and similar cities, established the local series last year.

The River Market District anniversary schedule includes:
·        June 21 - "The Karate Kid"
·        June 28 - "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back"
·        July 5 - "Grease"
·        July 12 - "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"
·        July 19 - "Napoleon Dynamite"
·        July 26 - "The Nutty Professor"
·        August 2 - "Toy Story"
·        August 9 - "Fletch"
·        August 16 - "Sixteen Candles"
        Gates open at 5 p.m.
