2015’s Schedule

Saturday June 13  – PaddingtonGenre: Animated Family Movie; 95 minutes; Rated PG

Adapted from Michael Bond’s enduring children’s book series. As the story opens, Peruvian bear Paddington (voice of Ben Whishaw) makes his way to the big city, where he quickly gets lost until being taken in by the benevolent Brown family. Meanwhile, as the curious cub settles into his new life of domestic bliss, a scheming museum taxidermist embarks on a personal mission to get him stuffed and mounted.

Friday June 19 – Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad DayGenre: Family Adventures; 81 minutes; Rated PG

Judith Viorst’s acclaimed children’s book is brought to the big screen. The tale recounts a day in the life of a grumpy young boy who has everything go wrong, all in one day.

Friday June 26 – ET: The Extra TerrestrialGenre: 1982 Classic; 115 minutes; Rated PG

A sci-fi adventure that captures that moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups.

Due to copyright laws, we must pay to purchase the right to show each movie outdoors. Because we feel strongly about making our movie series a free event, we must depend on the generosity of local sponsors. We especially thank three anonymous High Bridge families who also made donations. Thank you to all the 2014 sponsors! The Events Committee would like to also thank the following volunteers for their selfless support of our movies series and for helping to make the 2014 Friday Night Flicks a success.

  • The High Bridge Recreation Committee for making such delicious popcorn.
  • Girl Scout Troop 80894 for selling candy and water.
  • And especially Jim Maher for volunteering to be our technical director for this series.
