Free Movies in Assiniboine Park

For this Friday, which starts off the August long weekend, if you have some time, why not join us for 2 free movies in the park.

We will be over by the Lyric Theatre where the movie will be shown.

At 7pm is the Croods, and at 9:15pm is Divergent.

It is a good idea to bring a folding chair, or blanket to sit or lie down on. (Chairs best. More comfortable.)

No $2 Meet up fee.

***Fingers crossed for good weather!

(I will bring the sealed bags of chips left from the picnic, and pop some fresh microwave popcorn before I come for us to share. Bring yourself a beverage. )

***

FYI - I WILL be at the movies, but I am working till 7pm I have been advised to my shock, so I wont get there till closer to 7:30pm.

I plan to be sitting up closer to the screen. I am sure most of you will be there before me.

I will put a sign on the back of my folding chair that says "Out & About Winnipeg" so it is easier to find us.

    I guess I can start by saying that it the beginning it was not easy to find everyone in the group & I think for the next meetup we need to find a way to make sure the group can find everyone that is in the group & I am going to suggest maybe a sign on a neon poster board.

      I would like to suggests flag attached to a chair as I could not find the group either even though I walked all around! :)

    I think that we had difficulty spotting one another because we did not expect that many people to be in attendance. It was quite an impressive crowd and I thoroughly enjoyed The Croods. Thanks again Stacey for organizing

    I went down to park but since I've only gone to a couple outings wasn't able to locate anyone I recognized. Hopefully better luck next time!

    Great to sit outside for the evening and relax. Thanks for the munchies. Not a huge sci-fi fan but overall it was great, as always, to get out with everyone. Stay safe this weekend!

    I had a good time and so did my grandson. We left after the first movie as he was getting tired. Thanks Stacey for organizing this. As always a good choice.

    Wow - that was a ton of people! And tons of pizza that I saw at the park ;)
    Another great meetup Stacey! I thoroughly enjoy hanging with you guys.
    The weather was perfect - the movie selection was really good. I hadn't seen either of those movies and I enjoyed them both :)

    What a sea of people. My guess 5000 people??? I really enjoyed myself. We didn't meet up with everyone, but I am sure everyone was there in smaller groups. I was in a group of maybe 14 people. Gorgeous weather. No mosquitoes. It was a miracle. LOL Lots of dragonflies flying about our heads.

      I did make it home safely on my bike thank god I had lights on it and I opted not to risk taking the bike path out of park since it was so dark so I thought it would be safer to take the roadway out of the park since it was better lit all the way home

    I went down to Assiniboine Park to see if I could join you all, but I couldn't find you. I was by the 2 white tents. Stayed for a bit then left. Hope you all had a great time! :)

    • Trevor W.

      We did and they had moved the tent anf Stacey had a sign on the back of her chair that said out and about winnipeg

      August 2

    • Stacey

      I didn't get there till after 8pm and honestly, I don't think anyone could see that sign there were so many people. I had to go up on the stage where the movie was playing at the end of the first movie and look for everyone. I still didn't see them till I went to the very East side and I saw David. He literally walked me to the group I could not see them in so many people.

    July 31

    • Stacey

      I agree! I am looking forward to tomorrow too. I am working till 7pm, going home to pop corn and change clothes, then I will be down. If you can Candace, save me a spot for my chair! I will probably get there about 7:30pm as long as I can find a parking spot at that time. I may be walking a bit of a distance.

      1 · July 31

    • candace

      Sure, I will definitely try to save you a spot for your chair!

  • Sheree

    Won't be able to make it after all. Hope you all have nice weather and no bugs!!!

    July 31

  • Monica

    how to find you

    July 30

    • Stacey

      It will be difficult for those not knowing who they are looking for. I said I would put a sign on the back of my folding chair.

      July 31

  • Colleen

    I'll be there with a friend for the second show. I really can't wait for a meet up that's going to really work for me, one where I can get a chance to communicate with people.

    July 30

    • Stacey

      Well I hope it works for you. We have never had a movie in the park meet up yet. I am thinking though people wont be talking through the movie. More so at first meeting. Guess we will soon find out.

      July 31

  • Alan

    I'll look for the group!

    July 29

  • Katherine

    54 people going!!! I think we will need some more popcorn!! I'll bring a bag.

    July 28

    • Stacey

      Thanks very much Katherine.

    I won't be in town. Going away for a few days. Enjoy everyone!'

  • Arlene C.

    I have a question for you. When we go to these outings,, how exactly do we know who the group is?

    July 23

    • Stacey

      This is not the best kind of meet up for new people to come out to, because there is a higher risk of missing the group. Regulars that come out often find the group no problem. I would say look for me and if I can clearly see your picture I will look for you. It will be harder again because I am going to arrive late and so the group could be there and you may not realize. People that are out going are not afraid to ask if we are the group, so they don't have a problem finding us. Shyer people do. I recommend first meet ups for people that are not as out going to be at a set place where there is a reservation so you cannot go wrong. So far though, everyone learns each others face and names and we have not had a problem that could not get remedied.

      July 23

    • Stacey

      In short, this meet up will be hit and miss for new people who they don't know who they are looking for. Lets stay positive though. At the very least you will see a free show.

      July 26

  • Arlene C.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I am hoping to make the Gimli trip and the Lamplight Tavern. Will let you know soon.

    July 24

    • Stacey

      Just add yourself in to the rsvp list if you decide to go.

    FYI - I WILL be at the movies, but I am working till 7pm I have been advised to my shock, so I wont get there till closer to 7:30pm. I plan to be sitting up closer to the screen. I am sure most of you will be there before me.

    July 22

  • Stacey

    For this meet up, I have to work earlier in the day, so I probably wont get there till 6:15pm. We will want to be closer up to the Lyric Stage to see the movie. So we will all meet closer up to the Lyric Stage. Where half of you went for the Free Ride concert on July 11.

    July 12

    • Stacey

      I have two unopened bags of chips from the Free Ride concert and I will bring popcorn before I go to this movie. So just bring yourself a beverage. We can share the chips and popcorn. That should be enough for everyone.

      July 12

    Hope the weather holds up!
