Movies in the Park

Looking for a great Friday night event - that's free? The NORD Movies in the Park program will show a great family friendly outdoor movie every Friday night from March 10 - May 19th at NORD playgrounds. What a great way to start the weekend with family, friends, and neighbors!

NORD partners with playground booster clubs and community organizations to promote the events. This season, each film screening will have an alternate indoor location in case of inclement weather.

The movies will begin at dusk, as the sun descends beneath the horizon, and weather permitting. The screenings are free and open to the public. Moviegoers are welcome to bring lawn chairs, blankets and picnics. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. No pets, alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, firearms, weapons, smoking, or cooking will be allowed during the event.
