Movie in the park 2019

Lawn chairs? Check! Blankets? Check! Ingredients for healthy family night ? Check! Sounds like you’re ready for a movie in the park at Sunset Park Portage’ Summer Movie in the Park 2019! Summer Movie in the Park is a free and family-friendly outdoor movie in Portage, Wisconsin, with a free movie blockbuster. It launched a few years ago as a ‘take back our parks’ initiative – in sync with the vision to sustain safe, healthy, thriving and free community event.

The show ran Thursday August 8th at dusk, at Sunset park. The free movie and the chance to help a local nonprofit gives residents a reason to visit their local park after dark, deterring inappropriate loitering and park use, and bringing additional safety and security to residents’ favorite locales.

Event began as early as 6:30p.m with the Portage Family Skate Park serving up concessions., though actual movie start time are 15 minutes after sunset. Before the movie, many families enjoyed the new park amenities that Sunset has to offer including watching the sunset. Over 60 people in attendance.
