If you are old enough to remember drive-in movies (or wish you were), summer gives you a chance to experience a movie under the stars. Spend a hot summer night watching the big screen outdoors, either on a blanket, beach chair or from your car.
Bucks County is the perfect place to bring back one of America’s favorite pastimes. So, pick your favorite movie, whether it is family, friends or date night, and enjoy the show!
PS. Don’t forget the bug spray!
The County Theater at Mercer Museum
King Arthur and his knights reign again this summer at the Mercer Museum. Along with the County Theater in Doylestown and the Moving Picture Cinema, outdoor movies will resume this summer.
The third Thursday of each month will feature a family-friendly outdoor movie on the green of the Mercer Museum, beginning on Thursday, July 15, 2021 with Monty Python and the Holy Grail. You can come dressed as your favorite knight as there will be a costume contest with prizes. Enjoy a cold treat from Kona Ice of Doylestown at the show. If it rains, the movie will be shown the following Tuesday, July 20.
Gates will open at 7:45 and the movies start at dusk. Tickets are limited and only available online at www.countytheater.org. Check out their website for future movies. You can also pre-purchase concession snacks. Bring your chair and a blanket and be transported back in time!
Veteran’s Park in Quakertown is Richland Township’s newest park. Built as a memorial to veterans, the park sports lighted softball and sports fields, picnic pavilions with charcoal grills, playgrounds and a walking path.
During certain summer nights, it also becomes an outdoor movie theater. This summer there are 3 movies planned to delight the entire family, including my favorite Babe!
- June 25 – Dolittle
- July 9 – Trolls World Tour
- August 13 – Babe the Gallant Pig
All movies are free and begin at dusk. You can pack a picnic and come early before the show!
