Garden Spot Village Invites Community to “Guliver’s Travels”

July 30, 2011

Free drive-in movie scheduled for Friday, August 26.

NEW HOLLAND, Pa. — July 30, 2011 — Families can enjoy some old-fashioned fun and a modern take on a classic tale when Garden Spot Village shows Gulliver’s Travels at a free drive-in movie night on the campus at 433 S. Kinzer Ave. The screening is scheduled for Fri., Aug. 26, and the rain date is Sept. 2. Gates open at 7 p.m., and the screening begins at dusk.

“We invite the community to join us for some family-friendly late-summer fun,” said Colleen Musselman, director of life enrichment at Garden Spot Village.

Gulliver’s Travels is a comedy/adventure/fantasy starring Jack Black and Emily Blunt. In this modern take on the Jonathan Swift classic, Lemuel Gullver is a newspaper mail clerk who takes on a travel writing assignment, only to become shipwrecked in the Bermuda Triangle. When he finds himself on the island of Liliput instead of Bermuda, he learns what it’s like to have people look up to him. Gulliver’s Travels is a Dove ‘Family-Approved’ selection, indicating that it reflects traditional Judeo-Christian values.

Earlier in the summer, outdoor movie nights at Garden Spot Village attracted families from throughout eastern Lancaster County. Movies run on a 40-foot-high screen sponsored by Turkey Hill. Moviegoers can tune in to the soundtrack via their car radio or bring blankets and lawn chairs and listen to the outdoor sound system. More than 2 acres of lawn seating are available, but parking is limited to 80 cars. Concession stands sell popcorn, candy, hot dogs, beverages and other refreshments.
There is no charge for admission. Donations to the Garden Spot Village Benevolent Fund will be accepted at the gate.

Kiwanis International is the Gold Sponsor for outdoor movie night. New Holland Business Association and Susquehanna Bank are silver sponsors.
