Sandwich Park District Movie’s in the Park

This is a community event for all ages! Bring your own lawn chairs, blanket, Frisbee or other park friendly toys and enjoy an evening in the park.

Concessions will be available for purchase. While this is a family event, we ask that parents be reminded that once the movie starts everyone must be seated in the designated area adjacent to the large screen. Park rules include having pets on a leash and the proper disposal of any waste. All other areas of the park including the basketball court and playground equipment close at dusk. Anyone that does not comply with the rules will be asked to leave. Unaccompanied teens are welcome to attend the movie and enjoy time with their friends.
