Parks & Rec Director Eileen Earle told Bethel Buzz today that their next Free Family Movie Night will be on Thursday August 25th. The movie to be shown is Toy Story 3. Last month’s movie night was very well attended. The movie shown was Despicable Me. Click here to read more about it.

Parks & Rec worked with the First Selectman’s Office and the Municipal Center Committee to coordinate the event’s time to coincide with the downtown farmers market on Thursday. The movie night takes place directly after the farmers market which runs each Thursday from 3:00-6:00 p.m. The Free Family Movie Night is a fun night out for family and friends.


Admission is free. Bring your family and friends along with blankets and chairs.

The movie will start at dusk, BUT there will be food and drink concession stands along with

family entertainment beginning at 7:00pm.

In case of inclement weather, please call Parks & Rec. at 794-8531 for further details.

PLOT: Woody, Buzz and the whole gang are back. As their owner Andy prepares to depart for college, his loyal toys find themselves in daycare where untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice. So, it’s all for one and one for all as they join Barbie’s counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear to plan their great escape.

Families bring blankets and chairs and watch the movie on a huge inflatable projection screen that is rented from New Fairfield Parks & Rec who owns the equipment.

The movie will begin after dusk which last month was approximately 8:45 p.m. Food and drinks will be available to purchase. For more information please contact Bethel Parks & Rec at (203) 794-8531. To  read more about Disney’s Toy Story 3 click here.
