The Wilderness Must be Explored: UP coming to Hasbrouck Park, Aug. 10

by kingstonparksmovies

This week on Friday, August 10th we present Academy Award nominated Up at Hasbrouck Park just off Delaware Ave beginning at 8:30pm.  Up is the story of an old man by the name of Mr. Fredrickson who finds a new lease on life after meeting a young “Wilderness Explorer,” Russell.  “The wilderness must be explored! CA-CA! RAAWWRR!”  A genuine love story that both kids and adults will enjoy, it will make you cry and it will make you laugh so hard you will cry some more.  Come early to get a good spot and learn a bit of Wax on, Wax off with Karate Master Keith Bennett beginning at 7:30pm.  Each week we are pleased to provide free popcorn compliments of Queens Galley/Cooking Matters and the Junior League, ice cold bottled spring water from our friends at Binnerwater, and the Salvation Army dishes up free hot dogs and lemonade.  All of this programming is made possible by the wonderful volunteers of Kingston Parks Movies Under the Stars, including a great team from United Healthcare.  Official Movies Under the Stars T-shirts will be available for just $5.

The film will be shown by the ball field in Upper Hasbrouck near the pavilion.  If you come, bring a lawnchair or a blanket and this week you should carry a flashlight.  Parking will be available within the park, but the best way to get there will be the Citibus Jitney Trolley, making stops across the city beginning at 6:30pm and 7:30pm.  And if you missed the chocolate extravaganza that accompanied Willy Wonka, never fear.  There are still 3 cases of candy bars left that will be available first come, first served!!

We’ll see YOU at the Movies!
