Movie Night makes a splash
Done movies at home? The theater? The drive-ins? How about the pool? Newark's Silliman Center invites you to their Splash-In Movie Night for a refreshing new viewing experience.
An inflatable screen will be set up in the back corner of the activity pool with "Toy Story 3" providing the evening's entertainment. Tubes from the lazy river are allowed in the pool for this special occasion, and a limited amount of extra tubes and other flotation devices will be provided. Outside flotation favorites are not allowed. The waterslides will be the only running water activity; all other sources will be turned off in order to hear the movie.
The Silliman Center has been hosting splash-in movie nights since they opened in July 2004 to a good sized audience. After a brief hiatus last year due to budget cuts, the splash is back and aiming to be a regular event once more.
Movie admission includes recreational swim time for those who want to start the fun early. Admission is $1 for members, $6 for ages three through sixth grade, $7 for teens through twelfth grade, and $9 for adults. Seniors 55-69 pay $7 and those 70 and over pay $6. Open rec runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., with the center closing briefly to prepare for the evening event. First time admission and rechecking in will begin at 6 p.m. Those returning to the center from recreational swim will pay an additional $1 for readmission.
So plan to shake up your movie night with a splash of community fun!
