WVU Children’s Hospital to sponsor Shrek the Third at Family Night Under the Stars

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.– The Family Night Under the Stars movie series continues at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Amphitheater on Friday, May 30, with a showing of “Shrek the Third.”


The movie follows an ogre who must rule the land of Far Far Away after his “frogger-in-law,” King Harold, suddenly croaks. Admission is free to the PG-rated movie, which begins at dusk. 

WVU Children’s Hospital and the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners (BOPARC) are the showing’s sponsors. Before the movie, hospital staff will distribute brochures detailing hand-washing procedures.

On almost every Friday through August, a drive-in-style family movie plays on a gigantic screen at the outdoor amphitheater. Attendance at the movies usually reaches around 500, so families are encouraged to arrive early and to bring lawn chairs and blankets.

Movies are subject to rain delays and cancellations. Those announcements are made on WVAQ, WAJR and WKKW radio stations. For more information on Family Night Under the Stars, visit www.boparc.org.
