NPN tells us…
Welcome Muggles and Movie fans to the final movie of the 2012 Outdoor Movie Season!
Just as summer winds down and we start to plan for the HUGE haunted house on the movie front lawn, something wicked this ways comes: Our final feature film of summer will be Harry Potter 3.
The lawn space will open a few hours before show time for people to spread out their picnic blankets, mingle with their friends and neighbors, and grab a bite to eat. At approx 6:30pm, we grill out and BBQ for a few hours while we wait for dusk. We’ll supply brats, hot dogs, soda, water, and tons of good candy movie. For Harry Potter night, we’ll stock up on some chocolate frogs and Bearnie Bott’s Every flavor beans (watch out – don’t eat the ear wax ones…)
All of the grill food, soda, candy, and, of course, an unbelievably large amount of buttered popcorn are on the house!
Please note: the grill food usually runs out by 7:30 – so people are encouraged to bring their own spread as well. The events are BYOBlankets and BYOB.
Anyone (kids OR adults) who come in a Harry Potter themed costume will get a special prize at the movie night – so get creative and surprise us. Extra points if your dog pretends to be Wizard dressed as an Animagus.
At dusk, we fire up the industrial sized popcorn machine, the lawn speakers, and the projector to start the show. Sunset in August is around 8:30 when we’ll start the movie.
Please note, there will be an $8 charge for each adult attending this movie. Kids (under 13) are free. (This entrance fee will help us cover the cost of each month’s movie license from the studios). There is no separate purchase price for food.
We’ve got a great location in Ravenswood for our outdoor cinema. Ravenswood Elementary School has allowed us to use their parking lot – so no problems hunting for a space! The movie itself will be on the large lawn space of Bethany Church – 4250 North Paulina Street. If you have a folding chair you’d like to use on the lawn rather than a blanket, there’s room for those as well (though the screen is elevated so you should be able to see either way).
Parking is at the Ravenswood Elementary School at 4332 North Paulina.
The lawn space of Bethany Church is at 4250 North Paulina.
Follow the scent of butter melting on movie popcorn if you can’t find us.
See you at the movies!

The fine print:
To keep ticket costs low, we bulk order the food for the grill, the candy, the soda, and popcorn based on the RSVP’ed headcount. Because all of our food purchases (and costs) are based on RSVPs, there are no refunds if you cancel.
There is a rain location in the unfortunate chance of rain. But mother nature hasn’t gotten us yet! Come rain or shine – the movie is still on!
