New Britain Parks and Recreation Department are pleased to announce a series of holiday movies that will be shown at the New Britain Police Department during the upcoming weeks. Matinees on Main, a new special event theme with specific holiday movies, will take place on Saturday December 14th (Santa Buddies), December 21st (Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, & Magic Show), and December 28th (Happy Feet) from 10:00a.m. to 12:30p.m. in the Police Department’s community room.
The Matinee’s on Main movie events are geared towards parents and children in preschool through 5th grade. Space is limited to the first 100 people to sign up. Parking will be free in the downtown city garages for each event date. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Parks and Recreation office for $1 per person for children and adults or $3 on the day of the event. Popcorn, beverages and an arts and crafts area for children are included in the cost of admission. Mayor Stewart is excited about the additional opportunities for families to spend time with their children during the holiday season, saying, “It’s the most joyous time of the year and what better way to spend it than by coming downtown and celebrating the season with family and friends.” Parks and Recreation Director, Bill DeMaio added, “We are bringing back the downtown theater idea from many years ago. This is a great opportunity for young people to socialize and meet new friends in a safe and warm environment. Put on your pajamas and come on down for a great time!”
On December 14th, Santa Buddies will be shown. Santa Buddies is a 2009 film that features a pack of puppies that are out to preserve the melting Christmas icicle by getting others to believe in Christmas. The December 21st showing is a special double feature of the TV specials Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman. There will also be a special magic show by Amazing Andy in between showings. Recreation Superintendent Erik Barbieri stated, “The children will be mesmerized by Amazing Andy’s disappearing animals and unbelievable card tricks. They will also laugh plenty at Andy’s variety of juggling acts.” The final movie on December 28th is Happy Feet, a 2006 award winning animation film that centers on saving the lives of endangered penguins in the Arctic.
