Sitting back and watching a good movie always does the trick after a long summer day! But how much more fun would it be to cuddle up and watch a family favorite outdoors?
On select evenings throughout June, July and August, Westchester’s Ridge Hill will be hosting Movie Mondays, a FREE, family-friendly film series under the stars. Back in April, Wee Westchester readers had the exclusive honor to help select the featured movies and here is what you chose: June, 16 – The LEGO Movie; July 14- Frozen; August 11 – Despicable Me 2. Because Westchester’s Ridge Hill has been host to some of the most fun and festive family events our county has to offer, we know Movie Mondays is a can’t miss!
The films will begin at sunset and take place at Town Square, between Brio Tuscan Grille and Cheesecake Factory. The folks at Ridge Hill encourage all attendees to bring your beach chairs, blankets or something comfy to sit on. Be sure to arrive early to shop and take part in the pre-film activities in Town Square beginning at 7pm, or make it a fun-filled family day for the June 16 premiere with a special visit to LEGOLAND Discovery Center for “LEGO Day” where there will be discounted admission at just $10 per visitor (and, as always, kids under two are admitted for free).
Pre-screening activities for all Movie Mondays will include popcorn and refreshments by Whole Foods Market (while supplies last), local craft beer by Yonkers Brewing Company, tennis tips from Yonkers Tennis Center, a LEGO Station with a LEGOLAND Discovery Center Model Builder (on 6/16 only), and music by WHUD. Wee Westchester will be hosting a coloring station for the June 16 and July 14 screenings, so be sure to stop by and visit!
And, don’t worry about making dinner before you head out…there will be specials for movie-goers at a bunch of Ridge Hill’s family-friendly restaurants, including Bonefish Grill, Havana Central, Texas de Brazil, and Little Buddha…just mention Movie Mondays.
