Ryan’s Outdoor Movie NightsMay 7, 2023
Come join my outdoor movie nights!
Since projected movies are only visible after dark, all movies start at or about 8pm. The exact time will vary somewhat depending on ambient light levels, but just after 8pm is the target. You’re welcome to show up starting at 6:30pm. I’ll supply popcorn, and maybe some fresh-churned ice cream; feel free to bring snacks for yourself or to share!
Bring a lawn chair if you have one! I have one or two spare seats, but not enough for everyone.
To avoid disturbing the neighbors, these movies are being shown as Silent Cinema. Movie audio is broadcast via FM radio, instead of being played through speakers. I have headsets available for use, or you can bring your own radio with your own headphones if you prefer. Please note that radios which rely on an internet connection will not work with this system.
Please RSVP to each movie by reaching out to Ryan no later than the Wednesday before the movie. Movies are subject to cancellation due to weather.
