Eureka Springs Walk-In Movie Theater
May 23rd, 2011 by Susan Harman
The scene. You walk into Basin Park with your lawn chair looking for the perfect place in this unique outdoor theater. After finding your spot you make your way to the concession stand to get some hot popcorn, your favorite candy and a couple of tall cool drinks. Settling down into your chairs you wait for the sun to go down a little more and then laugh the night away watching a great movie. Afterward you head back to the bed and breakfast with great memories for a sound nights sleep.
The event is Eureka Springs Sunday Movies in the Park Summer Season. There will be six weeks of movies starting June 5th. The movies are free and prizes will be given out at each movie. Movie goers can pick up entry tickets from as many participating business locations as they can giving themselves an even greater chance of winning a prize.
And here is the just released movie schedule. . . .
