Commissioner Tucci Announces “Movie Under The Stars” June 9th

Do you remember the days of drive in movies?? The fresh air, the open space. Well we remember those days too and we are bringing the old time tradition back to Nutley. The Department of Parks and Recreation is excited to announce Nutley’s return of “Movie Under the Stars”. Similar to a drive in movie, spectators are welcome to bring a lawn chair or blanket and view a movie under the stars. The movie is projected on a large blown up screen, which will be set in the Nutley Oval, located at 300 Franklin Ave. Equipped with a brand new sound system, residents will enjoy this flick loud and clear.
The selection for 2017 is “Moana”. The film tells the story of Moana, the strong-willed daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of saving her people.
“Our goal is to create a family environment for residents to come together and spend quality time with one another” stated Commissioner Mauro G. Tucci. Our youngsters learn about family values from the time they spend with their own. Our families are the single most important aspects of our lives but with the growing number of challenges we face when it comes to family time, whether it be our busy work schedules, increasing responsibilities or our children’s sport schedules, it is important we don’t forget to take time out to enjoy today. As recreation professionals we play an important role in molding some of the values that can gradually deteriorate within busy family schedules. By implementing and centering our efforts on family recreation we can be a tremendous positive force in our community.
This special event will take place on Friday, June 9, 2017 at the Nutley Oval. The movie will begin at dusk. What a great way to kick off the summer. This event promises to be “one of a kind”, so be sure to join us at the Nutley Oval at dusk to experience this family event. A rain date has been scheduled for June 30th.
Food Items will be available for purchase. If you need further information on this event, please contact the Recreation Department at (973)284-4966, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.More: Home News Parks and Rec News
