The season has changed a bit and I finally had the chance to grab the camera and snap of few shots of our big family night Saturday. "Horton Hears A Who" was a smashing success! A nice crowd of 16 folks braved a very hot day...when the sun went down, a slight breeze made it all bearable.

Some great new trailers (including HSM3) preceded the feature - a good time was had by all (and it was my birthday, too!)

Attached are a few pix~




Chairman Mao..........

I've always loved your setup as it is 'one with nature' using the trees, very clean, and fits right in with your yard.

Nice.

************************************************************
For those of you joining us for the first time this season:
 
Most shows start around 8:45 PM, getting earlier toward the end of summer.  All shows end between 10 and 10:45 PM  
We always clarify times and details in individual e-mails a week before the show.
All features tend to stay in the G to PG-13 ratings range.   
Along with our shows, we have a "potluck/BBQ/cocktails" event starting an hour and a half before the movie.
There's always a pre-show with shorts / coming attractions and we have some cool stuff this year! 

As for the food, we usually do hot dogs or hamburgers, but don't let that stop you from bringing whatever you want to grill: meat, fish, veggies.... there's plenty of room on the grill ! It's all about food, fun, and film!

If you're not grilling, we still ask that you bring a dish to share (a main dish, a side dish or dessert).

As always: it's important to bring mosquito repellent, a jacket, sports/low chairs (or pillows and blankets, if you prefer), movie snacks and whatever you'd like to drink!  

More details to come at the end of May!

A gorgeous night under the stars and the biggest turnout in awhile tonight!

(Unfortunately, I think I blew one of the old rock speakers...thankfully, I have a spare pair of new outdoor speakers that have been sitting in a box in storage!) Time to upgrade to new speakers!

Ended the season with a beautiful end-of-the-summer night and an excellent turnout for "The Avengers". Added bigger rock speakers (a definite plus for this movie!)

Planning is underway for next season!

For this season, we decided to take out the old brick and railroad-tie patio which had begun to fall into disrepair. Installed a concrete slab and extended it to the sides. The steps up to the house are big enough to sit people on! A wise investment for these summer nights. (Just need to grow grass a little faster - but, that doesn't seem to be a problem this time of the year, does it?)  Wink

One minor hitch: In thinking I had turned the sprinklers off for the night, I inadvertently set them for a test program and they came on for about 2 minutes a half hour before the guests were due to arrive!  Shocked  Ugh! Everything turned out okay, but there's another thing to add to the checklist!

Full house and the biggest opening night ever....24 people enjoyed the humble OOC for a delightful evening of food, film, and fun - "Oz" is an awesome start to the season; great family fun. I highly recommend it!

For those not aware, the first 20 mins are in full frame black and white, then the screen turns to color and expands to a 2:35 image (see the trailer)...quite breathtaking!
