WVU Hospitals’ Chestnut Ridge Center sponsors Friday’s Family Night Under the Stars

MORGANTOWN, WV – The Family Night Under the Stars movie series continues at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Amphitheater Friday with a showing of “Evan Almighty.”

The event is sponsored by the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners (BOPARC) and West Virginia University Hospitals.

The PG-rated movie is about Congressman Evan Baxter, who is instructed by God to build an ark in preparation for a great flood.

Admission is free. The movie begins at dusk (around 8:30 p.m.).

The showing is sponsored by WVU Hospitals’ Chestnut Ridge Center. Before the movie, Chestnut Ridge staff members will be on hand to offer free popcorn and handouts encouraging drug-free youth. Miss West Virginia, Kayla Lynam, is also scheduled to attend.

On almost every Friday through August, a drive-in-style family movie will play 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.
