Free Movie Nights

Last night I drove by The Town Green in Windsor where I watched The Tempest last week. They were in the process of setting up the giant movie screen for their free, Tuesday night movie series. I wasn't interested in seeing last night's movie, "Hotel for Dogs", but I was curious to see the screen. People had come early to set up their chairs to save a spot. I just love how folks leave their chairs then go about their business, only to return hours later to watch the movie. I felt like I'd fallen back in time about thirty years to a time where people were more trusting.



As you can see, the screen is constructed like a bounce house. Once it is inflated it becomes a giant screen. I think it is just a brilliant concept. I don't know why more towns don't follow suit. There are so few places for families to go these days that don't cost a small fortune.

  1. It is a great idea! Maybe it could be the start of bringing drive-in movies back!

  2. That is a brilliant idea! And we are fortunate to live in a place where you can set your chairs up and leave.

  3. My town does this too. I love it and think it's a great way to bring small town communities together. My nephews school puts these on as well and the golf course and water park, so there always seems to be something to go watch during the summer. I love small towns.
