Summer Arrives on Harrison Avenue in Leadville
It’s Films, Fun and Friday Nights in the Park!
Who needs an air-conditioned cinema when you have Ice Palace Park? That’s right, the Community Movie Night series is back and they’re kicking off the 2017 season on Friday, June 30 with a film that’s on everyone’s favorite: Jurassic World (PG13).
The movie highlights a new theme park, built on the original site of Jurassic Park, which creates a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur that escapes containment! Jurassic World stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt.
All movies in the park are FREE and begin at dusk, which is generally about 8 p.m-ish this time of year. The film will be preceded by lawn games, sports, and picnics starting at 6 p.m. Some concessions will be available to purchase, and grills are located at Ice Palace Park, so bring some seating, dinner, Frisbees, and your friends. Dinosaur costumes highly encouraged! Ice Palace Park is located north of the Mining Museum (E. 10th Street Entrance).
The rest of the Leadville Community Movie Nights will play every other Friday night from then. So mark the calendar for July 14 & 28, August 11 & 25 and the season wraps up on September 8. Stayed connected to what’s playing on the Leadville Community Movie Night Facebook Page and pass the popcorn!
