Allied Arts and Yakima Parks and Recreation have teamed up to bring theater quality movies outdoors. Their first showing brought over 350 people to the park.
The summer cinema program is in it’s second year. Movies will be offered in Randall Park on Fridays and Gilbert Park on Sundays.
Yakima arks and Rec staff say setting up the big screen is quite the task.
“We get our air generator supply that pushes the air into the screen and it works pretty effectively I’d say. In like 3 to 4 minutes we can get it pretty much 100% inflated,” said Robbie Barrany.
Here’s a list of movies showing over the next few weeks.Gilbert Park July 27th The Neverending Story Aug 3rd Shark Tale Aug 10th The Land Before Time Aug 17th Shrek the Third Randall Park Aug 1st The Water Horse Aug 8th Hoosiers Aug 15th Apollo 13
