Guardians of the Galaxy July 22 on Sorauren screen

The second outdoor movie of the season features the swashbuckling raccoon and other heroes (human, couple of aliens, a wonderful tree-being) from the 2014 summer hit, Guardians of the Galaxy.

If you loved it the first time, you’ll love it more with friends at the park. If you haven’t seen it, now’s your chance. If you’re unsure about sci-fi comic book adventures, this is the one to check out. Great soundtrack. Funny. PG.

The movie plays on the big screen at the Sorauren Town Square on Saturday, July 22 starting at 9:00. It’s free, with popcorn and park t-shirts for sale, and donations always accepted.

Thanks again to our sponsors for making the Sorauren Outdoor Movie season possible.

Monty Python Holy Grail first outdoor movie June 24

Chercher le vache… no longer. Monty Python and the Holy Grail will be the first movie of the Sorauren Park Outdoor Movie series, following the (new) tradition of a cult classic for the year’s first film.

The movie starts at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 24 at the Sorauren Town Square. Come early to claim a spot and get your popcorn and Friends of Sorauren Park t-shirt.

Big thanks to our sponsors.

E.T. wins as Sept. 24 outdoor movie selection

Movie poster for E.T. The Extra-terrestrial

Steven Speilberg strikes again: his 1982 classic E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will be the third and final film of the Outdoor Movie summer series at Sorauren Park. The movie will be shown on the outdoor screen Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m.

E.T. was the clear winner in the community movie poll, taking 43% of the online votes. Wall-E came second at almost 15%.

The story of the lost alien found by children who help get him (it?) home follows the screening of Speilberg’s thriller JAWS on Aug. 27.

Outdoor Movies are free… bring your lawn chairs and blankets. Popcorn will be on sale and donations will be accepted to support the free programming produced by the non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park. Cash or online donations accepted on-site. It costs more than a thousand dollars to put on each movie, to cover the costs of insurance, park permits, and movie licensing fees.

The 2016 Outdoor Movie Series would not be possible without the help of community donations and the support of our generous sponsors. Thank you!
