Commissioner Scow Hosts Free Family Movie Nights at Whitney Park Starting Oct. 26
Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow is inviting families to join her for a series of movie nights at Whitney Park starting on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 6:30 p.m.
The Movies in the Park series debuts with a showing of “Monster House” on Saturday night, “Rise of the Guardians” on Saturday, Nov. 9, and “The Polar Express” on Saturday, Dec. 7. Each movie will be shown at 6:30 p.m. at Whitney Park, located at 5712 Missouri Ave, just east of Boulder Highway.
The films are rated PG, and all children must be accompanied an adult. The movie night series is free and is being hosted by Commissioner Scow and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Southeast Area Command’s Safety Through Outreach and Prevention (STOP) Program.
“I am proud to partner with Metro’s Southeast Area Command on providing this event to the public,” said Commissioner Scow, whose Commission District G includes neighborhoods near Whitney Park. “We are working together to build neighborhood identity throughout District G, and we hope our Movies in the Park series will encourage residents to come out to meet their neighbors and enjoy some fun evenings with their families.”
Aamco Transmission is providing free treats and hot chocolate on movie nights. Participants are encouraged to dress warm and to bring blankets and lawn chairs. Several community organizations also will be on hand on movie nights to provide free information to the public about their services.
Residents can contact Commissioner Scow’s office at (702) 455-8531 if they have any questions about the movie series. District G residents also can sign up to receive a free email newsletter via the County’s website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov.
