Bandits’ Movie Nights Bigger and Better Than Ever

PRESS RELEASE – With the new 20-foot tall x 36-feet wide high definition video board now installed at Modern Woodmen Park, Genesis Family Movie Nights will offer fans an entirely new, and much better, experience. The River Bandits and Genesis Health System are opening the gates of Modern Woodmen Park to welcome families to watch select classic family films under the stars on the vibrant new video board atop the scoreboard in left-centerfield.

“This is a great way for families to spend some quality time together and have a great time in a picturesque setting for very little money while supporting a great cause,” said River Bandits ownerDave Heller. “Besides the environment, what makes this experience unique is that it allows fans to watch a movie on a screen bigger than in most theaters and at the same time they can get on the field, stretch out and watch from their favorite spot or they can enjoy the movies from a unique vantage point in the stands.”

Throughout the remainder of the summer four selected films will be shown on the 690 square foot HD video board at Modern Woodmen Park. Gates will open for the events at 7:30 with movies starting at 8:00.  Guests will have access to theater-style concessions to enhance their experience. As an added bonus, attendees are allowed on the field to watch the films from the outfield grass. Admission is $5 with all gate proceeds benefiting the Genesis Flu Free QC Fund.

Below is a list of the dates and the movies that will be shown:

–  Sunday, July 24: Spiderman

–  Sunday, August 7: Singing in the Rain

–  Sunday, August 14: Toy Story

–  Friday, August 26: Finding Nemo

“Fans that come out to Modern Woodmen Park for this fun experience will be treated to the same level of hospitality they have come to expect from events held by the River Bandits,” said River Bandits general manager Kirk Goodman. “The money raised goes to a great cause and our fans have always enjoyed this special experience – and they’ll enjoy it even more on our gorgeous new video board!”
