Coming soon to an activity center near you: Friday night movies at the Birch Bay Activity Center.
Beginning Friday, May 15, the Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2 (BBBPRD) is hosting free movie nights at the Birch Bay Activity Center in Bay Horizon Park.
The screenings will run throughout the summer, showing a variety of family-friendly features each week.
The series will kick off with “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” and conclude on September 4 with a screening of “Tangled.” The rest of the summer will feature a full slate of minions, Muppets, pirates, princesses and everything in between.
As an added bonus, four of the films will correspond to special theme nights, where moviegoers will be encouraged to dress up and enjoy themed snacks. The first theme night, video game night, will take place on May 22 to correspond with the evening’s movie, “Wreck It Ralph.”
Joshua Davies, who is organizing the movie nights for the BBBPRD, said the staff is encouraging visitors to dress as their favorite video game characters or bring their favorite toys and games.
“We haven’t decided if we’ll have prizes for costume contests yet or not, but I think it’ll just be fun to have everyone come out and participate,” Davies said.
Davies is also planning a pirate night, a princess night and a “crazy character” night to go along with the showing of “Alice in Wonderland.”
Davies said he and his volunteers are planning to set up around 8:30 p.m. and start the movies around 9 p.m. For more information, contact BBBPRD at 360/656-6416.
