Small Crowd Attends Free Movies in Park

Empty Seats

Aug. 5, 2012 By Christian Murray

Sunnyside Shines’ summer schedule of free movies in Noonan Park (47th Ave. and 43rd St.) has had its problems this season. The first event was rained out, while the second was delayed for an hour because of a missing generator and a bad DVD copy.

There were no such problems on Friday night for the third installment of Movies in the Park. The only thing missing was a large crowd. Plenty of seating was available for the screening of Footloose.

However, those who did attend the event, liked it.

“It’s great that they do things like this,” said Connie Kelly, a resident. “It’s a perfect night for it.  All that’s missing is the beers.”

I passed by there. It wasn’t packed but there were a fair few people.

Maybe free popcorn next year?


I didn’t want to leave home on Friday it was so hot. Those people who went must be hard up.
