Free Outdoor Movie, “Black Panther” Unspools in Warinanco Park Tuesday Night, Aug. 17

On Tuesday, August 17 “Black Panther” will be the next installment in Union County’s series of free outdoor movies.

Union County, NJ – The Union County Board of Commissioners would like to invite all residents to come and enjoy the next free outdoor movie night in Union County’s “Family Fun and Flix” series. The series continues with The Black Panther on Tuesday evening, August 17 at 7:30 p.m., at Warinanco Park in Roselle.

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

The Black Panther opened in 2018 to enthusiastic reviews. It tells the story of T’Challa, heir to the reclusive but technologically advanced kingdom of Wakanda, who must confront a challenger from the past and lead his country into a new future.

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. Bring 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.

The Family Fun and Flix series is shown on a weather-permitting basis. In case of bad weather, the rain date for each event will be the following Wednesday night.
