NOBLESVILLE — Enjoy a summer night, a movie and practice social distancing, all in one place.
For the 13th summer, Noblesville will show movies through mid-September in city parks. "Attendees can enjoy family-friendly movies, bring a blanket, their dinner or snacks and enjoy an evening of cinema at Noblesville’s parks. Instead of one location for the movie series, this year we are bringing the movies to various parks across the city in order to give residents an opportunity to enjoy them closer to home,” Recreation Program Coordinator Erin Portman said.
To kick off the series, the Noblesville Parks Department is partnering with the Forest Park Aquatic Center, 1077 Cicero Road, to host two "Flick ’N Float events", which include “The Shallows” on Aug. 14, for an adult crowd, and “Lilo & Stitch” on Aug. 21 for all ages. The movies will start at dusk and will be shown on the pool deck while attendees view the movie from the pool. Pool admission after 5 p.m. is $4 and food and beverages will be available for purchase.
The remaining movies in the series will be shown at various city parks, begining at dusk and are free to the public. This year’s schedule includes:
Friday, Aug. 28 – Jumanji 2: Next Level (PG-13, 123 min.) at Finch Creek Park, 16233 Boden Road.
Friday, Sept. 4 – Frozen 2 (PG, 103 min.) at Dillon Park, 6351 Midland Lane.
Friday, Sept. 11 – Dolittle (PG, 101 min.) at Federal Hill Commons, 175 Logan Street.
Friday, Sept. 18 – A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (PG, 109 min.) at Southside Park, 396 Washington Street.
For social distancing, attendees are being asked to a distance of six feet from others. Screen setup at each park will allow space for movie-goers to spread out and enjoy the films. Masks are required for those eight and older in indoor public spaces or in outside public spaces when it is not possible to socially distance.
In the event of rain, movies may be rescheduled or moved inside Ivy Tech Community College, 300 N. 17 St. Light concessions will be available for purchase at all showings.
