Biltmore Fashion Park offers free Friday night movies
Bundled under the stars are small pockets of people watching a popcorn classic on finely manicured lawns. The best part, it's all completely free!
The Biltmore Fashion Park hosts Movies in the Park every Friday at 7:30 p.m. until April 27.The most recent screening was "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" shown to a packed audience.
The event attracts a wide range of movie lovers including student Patience Flake,
"I liked sitting on the grass with everyone, I felt like I was at a really cold summer camp," Flake said.
"Weather appropriate clothing aside, It was really nice to see the movie on a big screen. I wish more people sang along with the songs though. I could see everyone bouncing along to the oompa loompa songs." Lisa McNees, Flake's blanket companion said.
"Yeah, it would be great to see people get up and do the dances! As long as they didn't talk during my favorite parts. I wish I could try fizzy lifting drinks!"
Audience members sitting shoulder to shoulder in various blankets provided the perfect opportunity to get to know your grassy neighbors.
Janeann Helfrey, a student, spoke about talking to the people next to her,
"The couple next to me had this really cute dog that snuggled up and kept me warm."
"Can you imagine how awesome it would be if everyone got up and started singing along? I'd come back every week," said Flake.
McNees felt the only downside of the evening included the unrelated side conversations of the people around her,
"I wanted to get up and smack the loud couple behind me. I don't mind if people talk, but they were being so rude!"
All three girls wished the Biltmore would play some of their favorites including; "Cinderella", "Finding Nemo" and "The Wizard of Oz".
The upcoming schedule includes "The Fugitive", "Clueless", and "The Sound of Music". All films are screened in their original, unedited format. The whole family, including those with four legs, are welcome and food and beverages are encouraged.
The Biltmore Fashion Park is located at 2502 E Camelback Rd. Phx, AZ 85016.
