Let’s go to the Zoovies!

In case you haven’t heard, Audubon Zoo is hosting a series of family-friendly outdoor moving screenings of the summer’s most obsessed-over movies. They kicked off their Dinner and a Zoovie Nights series with Frozen, which is why the oak trees in Audubon Park were gently swaying in synchronicity that day to the sound of hundreds of tiny voices singing “Let it Go.”

This Saturday, July 13, 2014, is the The Lego Movie, which my entire family has only seen six times. But those don’t really count because they were all indoors. We have yet to see this hilariously entertaining movie outdoors on the big screen surrounded by lots of friends, neighbors… and zoo animals (but they’ll be sleeping because that’s what sleepy animals do at the Audubon Zoo).

And if you’re one of those people who obsesses over where your favorite food trucks will be at all times, please note that FRENCHEEZE and TACEAUX LOCEAUX will be at the Zoovies on Saturday, July 13, 2014, for your gastronomical pleasure.

Bring a blanket, bring the kids, maybe some environmentally friendly-biodegradable-sustainable-all natural bug spray, and let’s go to the Zoovies!

Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance so dad doesn’t have to stand in the long lines cursing the heat.

All shows are $5 per person (children under two years of age are free). Chairs and blankets are welcome. No glass containers, open candles or pets. And yes, a wine bottle is considered a “container.”

Shows will be outside at the Capital One Stage and Field inside Audubon Zoo.

See you there!
