MGM Season 3 is where the Hoop is…bring it.

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Tina and the gang from Spirithoops return for the full season at Friendship, Fairview and the Rose Garden. The hooping begins each night at 6:45pm so make sure you get there early, get you blanket and chairs in position and get your hoop on!

There will be enough hoops for a big crowd to get hooping and it’s not just for the kids! Hooping is a great way to loose some weight and have some fun with your kids. There will be some prizes as well!

See you….at the Movies!

Hotel for Dogs @ Friendship

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

 hotel-for-dogs

Emma Roberts, Don Cheadle, Lisa Kudrow
DreamWorks Pictures;
Directed by Thor Freudenthal
Rated PG; 100 minutes; 2009

Based on Lois Duncan’s novel, the story revolves around two orphaned teenagers who decide to turn an abandoned building into a safe haven for stray dogs.

 

Tonight’s Theme/Programming – Pets

We will have people (and animals) from the Center from Animal Health and Wellness. They are the largest no-kill animal shelter in the Lehigh Valley – the local animal shelter for Northampton County and the City of Bethlehem. On any given day they have 500 animals (100 dogs and 400 cats) getting a new one on average every 45 minutes.

The Minsi Trails Council Boy Scouts of America will have an information and registration table on June 12th at Hotel for Dogs. Boys going into 1st – 5th grade in the fall can join Cub Scouting. It’s not too late to join in the summer fun including camp.

Tina and the gang from Spirithoops will be back again this whole season to get you up and hooping and having fun contests with prizes. Come early and hoop it up or just cheer on all that do!

Also hoping to see Scooby Doo and the Mystery Machine. SO, come early and hang out with your friends and neighbors and see what we are up to this year at Friendship Park!

Movie Start Times – Pssst…fun starts at 6:45pm

Movies start a few minutes after sunset generally around 8:45-9:00pm. That doesn’t matter though because you are already there for the fun pre-movie events right? Hooping starts at 6:45 and there is always something going on while we wait so come early and get your chairs and blankets in a good spot and then get your popcorn on! Remember, we are on weekends now so there will be more people. Get a good spot early!

Snack Shack

The “Snack Shack” at Friendship Park is brought to you by the Friends of Friendship Park. Your support of the Snack Shack supports the garden and other improvements at Friendship Park. They will be serving hot, buttery, fresh popped popcorn, hot dogs, soda/water and other tasty treats. Bring your appetite! Unfortunately, Friendship Park has no bathroom facilities. I would suggest one of the restaurants on Linden Street or maybe the police substation also on Linden Street.

Weather

Weather is an issue with outdoor movies. We have to think of the safety of you….our audience, our volunteers and the equipment. Rain is bad for the electronics and wind can be a big deal with a 32×24 foot inflatable screen! In the event of bad weather, our makeup date is the next day. Please check the website the day of the event, check Facebook, check out tweets, call the office at 610-997-5732 and/or sign up for our Constant Contact Movies, Games and More email notification list.  See the Subscribe box on the lower right on the Sidebar of the website. We also hang a “postponed” banner at the site if you happen to cruise by the venue.

We are going to attempt to be more daring this year as last year was very difficult with alot of “iffy” weather. Another issue with a bad forecast is a small turnout. If we show it anyway, we have to pay the licensing fees. If hardly anyone is going to turn out because the forecast isn’t great, that’s a factor as well. Yet another factor is what programming we may have planned on a given night. Lot’s of programming is challenging to reschedule so the more stuff we have planned, the more likely we are to give it a go.

We subscribe to pay weather services that is supposedly better than what’s available for free but we have seen incoming rain just dry up and clouds disappear more than a few times. Grrrrrr!

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

 9

Animated Feature
Voices by: Elijah Wood,
Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover

Tonight’s Theme/Programming

Last summer we showed Mars Attacks at Fairview Park. Rather than just wait for dark and show a movie, we put together some fun programming that went with the theme of the movie. We had the actual flying saucer used in the movie at the park. The guys from the Armory at 2nd and Prospect Avenues brought over some HumVee’s and a crane to lift the saucer, we had Dr. Gary DeLeo a Lehigh University Astrophysicist talking about Mars Fact and Fiction, we had ladies from the Martian Tourism Authority there promoting the great vacation opportunities on Mars, we had a working 1/6th scale Mars Rover replica looking for signs of intelligent life at the park.

Over at Friendship we showed Kung Fu Panda. We had chinese themed decorations, a Tai Chi demonstration, martial arts demonstration, calligraphy demonstration, traditional chinese clothes to check out and try on, fireworks table by Celebration Fireworks that does Bethlehem’s 4th of July Fireworks, et.

In short, we have a good time before the movies. SO, come early and hang out with your friends and neighbors and see what we are up to this year at the Rose Garden!

Go to our Rose Garden page for pictures from last year to see what we have been up to.

Movie Start Times

Movies start a few minutes after sunset. Outdoor movies require it to be dark out in order to see the movie. Take a look at the sunset times in our weather forecast but are generally around 8:45-9:00pm. That doesn’t matter though because you are already there for the fun pre-movie events right?

Snack Shack

The “Snack Shack” at the Rose Garden will be serving hot, buttery, fresh popped popcorn, hot dogs, soda/water and other tasty home baked treats. Bring your appetite! There are bathrooms at the Rose Garden so come early and don’t worry.

coraline

Animated Feature
Voices by: Dakota Fanning, John Hodgman, Teri Hatcher

Directed by Henry Selick and Mike Cachuela
Rated PG; 100 minutes; 2009

 Coraline is a curious young girl who unlocks a mysterious door in her family’s new home and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this “Other World” eerily mimics her own life – though it is much more fantastical.
