Scavenger Hunt movie poster....with movie!

This 'unique' movie poster went up around our town a few weeks ago
scavenger hunt 18-a movie poster
Outdoor films are not an everyday occurrence in the UK.....in fact they're pretty rare.....we have just the one in our park each summer......always a 'family friendly' one.
It looked like fun......I remember Ghostbusters the first time round......even better.....a BBQ and bar........even better better........10 minutes walk from our house........and best of all.......the British weather decided to join the fun......a hot summer's day followed by a warm evening.
 A few hundred people turned up.......there was a 'Ghostbusters' fancy dress competition to start....the BBQ was delicious......and we settled down with food and drink
In the interval there was an 8o's music quiz.......while everyone tried to top up their glasses and find the toilets......without tripping over anybody else in the dark!
If only our weather would allow this to happen more often!!

What an awesome event! We have them all summer long here in Mid MI on Friday evenings. Movies in the park and some have Music in the park, weather permitting of course. Ghostbusters is one of my all time favorite movies for sure! Looks like fun was had by all Jacky!

How brilliant - I've never been to an open-air movie - several plays and concerts both in good weather and bad - glad it stayed fine for yours!

Sounds like a lot of fun! We did "Movies Under the Stars" as they call it on the ship this year. It was getting a bit chilly near the end!

Late Summer, our botanical gardens run a movie season and an outdoor theatre season - they are both very popular and we have been, though not for a long time.
Looks like you had the perfect night for it!
