Outdoor movies return to Shreveport's parks - can the Drive-in be far behind?
Movies & Moonbeams will begin in Betty Virginia Park on Sunday, November 13 at 6:30 P.M., with a screening of a Spielberg family film, says Clare France.
Movies & Moonbeams events, which will be held once a month, hurricanes permitting, will present films on a mega-inflatable screen with theater-quality projection and sound. When inflated, the system stands almost four stories tall, says Chris Jay. When deflated, well, never mind, says Sylvia Goodman.
Gates (believe it or not, Betty Virginia recently gave birth to fences and gates) will open at 5:30 P.M. The film will begin promptly at 6:30 P.M., or this isn't Louisiana. You may learn the film title (E.T.) by contacting (318) 424-9090 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Rain date: Sunday, November 20th.
Admission to Movies & Moonbeams is 50 cents. Boxed-lunches, concessions from Marble Slab and the Hot Dog Man, as well as candy and popcorn will be sold for cash money on site. While a limited amount of reserve seating will be available, the public is encouraged to bring chairs and/or blankets and scaffolding to create their own comfortable spot on the park lawn.
To reserve a seat or table, contact Shreveport Green at (318) 219-1888. Outside beverages and ice chests are not permitted, says the insiders.
