Next Up: “Tom and Jerry” at Union County’s Family Fun and Flix Outdoor Movie Series Event on August 10

Please note: Tonight’s (8/10/21) presentation of Tom & Jerry at Warinanco Park has been postponed til tomorrow (8/11/21) evening due to inclement weather and field conditions. 

Free outdoor movies will be presented in Union County parks this summer on a walk-in, sit-down basis; no pre-registration required.

Union County, NJ – The Union County Board of Commissioners would like to invite all residents to join us at the next outdoor movie night in Union County’s “Family Fun and Flix” series. The series continues with Tom and Jerry on August 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Warinanco Park in Roselle.

“Tom and Jerry” is a live action/computer animated film based on the nostalgic characters introduced to the world in the 90s. Released earlier this year, the film follows a mouse, Jerry, and his adventures at a fancy hotel in New York City, as a cat, Tom, tries to exterminate him before his presence threatens the hotel.

“Free outdoor summer movies are a favorite family tradition in Union County, and we are very proud to continue the series this year,” said Commissioner Chairman Alexander Mirabella.

Early arrival is encouraged as there will be a family-friendly dance party before the movie, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The movie will begin at dusk. Be sure to join us with a blanket or beach chair to claim a spot on the lawn.

An ice cream truck will be on site for attendees who wish to purchase a snack.

Movies will be shown on a weather-permitting basis. In case of bad weather, the rain date for each event will be the following Wednesday night.

The remaining dates for the 2021 Family Fun & Flix movie schedule:

  • Black Panther:   August 17 at Warinanco Park in Roselle
  • Aladdin – live action:  August 26 at Conant Park in Hillside
