The Ramsey County Parks are among the many parks offering free outdoor movies this summer. As with most of these parks, there is no fee and no registration. Just show up before dusk with a blanket and your insect repellant and get comfortable. Movies are shown on a 20-foot screen.
Here is the schedule.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day at White Bear County Park, 5050 Lake Avenue, White Bear Lake. Commonsense Media gives this PG film an Age 9 rating. You can read details and talking points here.
This is a Viewer’s Choice night at Long Lake, 1500 Old Highway 8, New Brighton. You can vote now between Big Hero 6, Despicable Me 2, Honey I Shrunk the Kids and The Goonies. I’ve linked to Commonsense Media reviews. You can vote HERE. As of my vote, Big Hero 6 was in the lead. The winner will be announced on July 24th. Maybe I’ll remember to update this. 😀
Grease at Keller Golf Course, 2166 Maplewood Drive, Maplewood. I am not sure why I, and so many parents I know, allow our kids to see this movie. There is honestly very little redeeming qualities about it; but I love it. Last year we even had an FFTC Summer Play Date to see the movie. At any rate, it is PG (mainly because PG-13 did not exist in 1978) and Commonsense Media gives it an Age 12 ranking and suggests we watch it once without our kids to refresh our memories.

Miracle at Vadnais Sports Center, 1490 County Road E East, Vadnais Heights. This is an indoor screening, which is good, because October 15th sounds cold. Commonsense Media gives this PG movie an Age 8 rating and has few issues with it.
You can find more information at Ramsey County Parks and Recreation or by calling their office at (651) 748-2500.
