FREE! Movies in the Park- The Lorax- at Riverfront Park in Conway, SC

Patiently waiting for the movie to start

Patiently waiting for the movie to start

Karen and I, along with her family and some friends, were able to enjoy yet another free outdoor movie this past Friday.  (See last week’s post about Movies Under the Stars in Valor Park for more information on free outdoor movies in the area.)  This time, we arrived with plenty of time to spare and found a great spot to enjoy The Lorax (one of my all time favorite movies!).

Before the movie began, Karen noted that this outdoor movie seemed more relaxed and less cramped– children were able to have fun on the nearby playground while adults were able to enjoy the quiet, slow-winding, black-water Waccamaw River.  There was a small truck selling popcorn, drinks, and snacks, and Karen even managed to get us some free popcorn (she’s so friendly!).  photo 2 - Copy (3)

The movie began right around dusk (they suggest arriving before 8:15), and although at one point we were all worried that the event would be rained out, we were able to finish the movie while staying dry.  Along with the featured movie, we were shown trailers for the upcoming movies (see below)  which I thought was a great touch.  As expected, this was another great night spent in Conway, SC.
