Family Fun & Flix in Warinanco Park returns with the showing of Finding Dory

Family Fun & Flix, a free summer entertainment and film series presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and sponsored this year by Investors Bank, kicks off another season at Warinanco Park on Tuesday evening, July 11. The feature film will be Finding Dory. The movie will begin at dusk.

Before each movie this summer UC Get Fit Kids activities will be offered. The Freeholder initiative offers a great way to keep kids active and healthy during the summer months. UC Get Fit Kids will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Finding Dory is an animated family drama about the friendly, but forgetful blue tang fish, Dory, and her search for her long-lost parents. Along the way everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family. The film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks and Ed O’Neill.

“Family Fun & Flix, combined with UC Fit Kids, gives families an opportunity to enjoy an entertaining evening in our parks while picking up some healthy living tips,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen.

All movies will begin at dusk, with everyone encouraged to bring a blanket or beach chair to claim your spot on the lawn. There will also be bleacher seats available.
