Building Cars to enjoy Movie night in Pine Bluffs
November 24, 2022
The popcorn was popping and smell of butter was in the air. The Annual Drive in Movie night was November 18th at 6:00 p.m.
On Tuesday November 15th Pine Bluffs Recreation opened the Pine Bluffs community center for the kids to work on their cars or what ever their creation might be to watch the movie on Friday night. There were boxes of all sizes, markers, plates, cups, carpet, construction paper, and more. Each kid that showed up to make their car received a cup full of goodies. The cars had places for their cups. Some of the boxes had places for their friends to share time with them at the movie. The creations and artworks was incredible for the cars at the theatre.
The Texas Trail Market has been the sponsor for the drive-in movie for years. Manager Dixie Bomberger and assistant manager Beth Steege greeted everyone at the door at the Pine Bluffs Community Center. Each movie goer received a hot dog, nachos, and pop tickets. Pine Bluffs council member Tom Mohren and Allie Leitza, Texas Trail Market Board member Jackie Fornstrom and Recreation assistant Heather Eggli helped with food throughout the movie. The pop tickets could be used anytime throughout the movie but the popcorn was free. Before the movie Recreation Director Sonja Fornstrom threw t-shirts out for the kids as a small gift for attending the movie.
The movie was SING 2. The kids love to sing with the music in the movie. Some parents have watched the movie several times. But the message about the movie is to show kids about fight for you dreams, never get bullied, and believe in yourself.
It was a great turn out for the event.The floor was packed with cars and blankets to watch the movie. There was about 125 people at the movie enjoying popcorn, singing along and having a great time.
