Asphalt Cinema: Third Friday of June, July, and August
Many joined us to see a free
movie under the stars at our popular Asphalt Cinema finishing up our eighth season. This was our second summer in our new home at Impett Park 3207 West 153rd Street. Added fun included a free music concert from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. We also offered creative games and activities provided by neighborhood merchants. A bubble gum blowing contest took place, too. Four Corners Baseball operated the concessions with our thanks! At dusk, a movie was shown on a large screen against a backdrop of tall trees. The movie and activities are FREE of charge thanks to our Asphalt Cinema sponsor, Fairview Hospital.
Mark your calendars for next summer to join in the fun!

Asphalt Cinema -- A Success!
Our neighbors enjoyed the eighth season of our series of free outdoor family movies called Asphalt Cinema. We moved from the Southeast Quad parking lot (our original "asphalt" location) to Impett Park because our former spot is now full of cars due to the popularity of Downtown Kamm's Corners. Hooray! However, the show must go on! So, all you need do is bring your lawn chairs and blankets further north for an evening of family fun under the stars in our new location, on the third Friday in June, July, and August -- also planned for the summer of 2011.
A special thank you goes out to everyone who makes Asphalt Cinema a success, especially to our neighbors who enjoy the event. Thanks especially goes to Fairview Hospital for generously sponsoring our entire 6th, 7th, and 8th seasons! Although free to the public, Asphalt Cinema incurs movie licensing and rental fees along with the cost of the movie screen, projection equipment, entertainment, and refreshments. Since our first season in 2003, it is Fairview's white laundry truck against which we have set up the projection screen for stability. We are grateful for their continued support!
There’s always fun for the entire family at Asphalt Cinema! We hope to see you next summer!
