If you've ever wanted to see a movie in a unique setting, look no further than Movies Under the Stars!
Each spring, summer and fall, the Police Jury shows all styles of movies under a star-filled Friday or Saturday evening at sundown in Prien Lake Park. The best thing about these events is that it's totally free to watch the event. Guests are encouraged to bring their blankets or chairs out early (around 7 p.m) to claim a good spot in the park to watch some of the silver screen's finest films - from recent blockbusters to timeless classic pictures.
Movies Under the Stars features the antics of Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, and the accident-prone Ernest P. Worrell for two special summer events. Shows begin at sundown (around 8 p.m.).
- July 7 – Watch Jellystone Park’s two scheming mischief-makers, Yogi and Boo Boo, in their latest adventures in 2010’s live action/computer animated comedy, "Yogi Bear." Yogi and his sidekick, Boo Boo, have hatched countless schemes to pilfer park visitors’ picnic baskets, but Ranger Smith usually manages to foil their plans. But when Mayor Brown announces his plans to sell Jellystone Park to loggers, Yogi, Boo Boo, and Ranger Smith join forces to save their campground (Rated PG).
- July 14 – Find out what happens when the clueless and accident-prone Ernest P. Worrell takes a job as a fix-it man at a summer camp for troubled boys in the 1987 classic “Ernest Goes to Camp.” This juvenile slapstick comedy chronicles Ernest’s campaign to get promoted to camp counselor. Along the way, he ends up causing all kinds of comical chaos but in the end, he winds up helping many of the campers (Rated PG).
See you at the movies!
