Movies on the Square 2008

We saw Cars this past Saturday, and had a pretty good time. The beer was cold, and they had juice boxes with wine in them, but no popcorn as promised. Next time, I guess we need to bring our own popcorn.
The Square was about as crowded as it could get and still be comfortable. A Reds game had just let out before the movie started, and the weather was perfect for strolling.

Each time I go, I am suprised that the movie watching works, even with lots of people walking around and traffic noise, etc.. I was pretty skeptical about a giant TV screen, but somehow it does seem to work.. When we are on the Square ice-skating or other events, we don;t even notice it, but when we are there to watch a movie, the people there for other events don't intrude on the movie.

The remaining movies are:

June 21: Hercules; My Big, Fat, Greek, Wedding
June 28: Spy Kids; Austin Powers - International Man of Mystery
July 5: A Bug's Life; Independence Day
July 12: Robots; I, Robot
July 19: Jimmy Neutron - Boy Genius; Batman Begins
July 26: The Goonies; Pirates of the Carribean - The Curse of the Black Pearl
August 2: Aladdin; The Mummy
August 9: Mulan; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
August 16: Mary Poppins; Mrs. Doubtfire
August 23: James and the Giant Peach; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
August 30: The Little Mermaid; Splash
September 6: Rudy; The Waterboy

I think we will go again this Saturday for Hercules. If any families want to meet up, send an email to mike at citykin dot com.

I'm not surprised that it works, deep down I think people really want these social, shared experiences and thats what the square is all about. And its a much better story than "we went to the mall and watched a movie"
Much more exciting to share with family and friends right?
We always have a good time when we go, haven't been to one this summer yet, too many parties to go to I guess, we have another one this Saturday. It looks like they have a good stretch of movies coming up I'd like to see. It figures the one I'd like to see the most, Austin Powers is on when I'm out of town.
