Movies in the Park opens with ‘Moana’

Young moviegoers settle in to watch "Moana" at Page City Park on June 3 as a pajama-clad bear ambles by in the background.

With summer just around the corner, the Page Public Library presented the Disney movie “Moana” as the first big-screen movie in the Page City Park on June 3. 

The movie was shown on a large fabric screen held high above the audience by an inflatable frame and tethered with ropes. The movie was easy to hear through the outdoor speakers.

As the sun set, the park was filled with families relaxing on blankets or lawn chairs, and people playing outdoor chess and other outdoor games provided by the library.

A slight breeze made the evening perfect for outdoor movie watching. Around 100 people had gathered to watch the movie by the time it started at 8 p.m. 

Future movie offerings at the park include “Gravity” on June 10, “Luca” on June 17 and “Maverick” on June 24.  

The movies are free to watch. All movies start at 8 p.m., and the public may bring blankets or lawn chairs.  

The library obtained a grant from the Arizona Library Association to fund the license costs to show the movie to the public.  

The Teen Advisory Group offered refreshments to moviegoers as a fundraiser for the group. Big Water BBQ offered their menu as well. For more information, please contact the Page Public Library at 928-645-4270.
