Movie on the Green

“Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!” Everyone knows that famous tag line from Finding Nemo. Next Friday, May 20, 1 Upland will be hosting our inaugural Movie on the Green Night, showing fan-favorite, Disney’s Finding Nemo. Open to all residents, we invite you to join us for this fun event and bring your friends and family along too!

If you’re not familiar, this family friendly flick is rated G for all audiences to enjoy.  The story follows Marlin (Albert Brooks), an overly cautious clown fish and  his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould), who has a foreshortened fin. When Nemo swims too close to the surface to prove himself, he is caught by a diver, and horrified Marlin must set out to find him. A blue reef fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) — who has a really short memory — joins Marlin and complicates the encounters with sharks, jellyfish, and a host of ocean dangers. Meanwhile, Nemo plots his escape from a dentist’s fish tank.

Our community green is the perfect spot to hang out with friends and family on a Friday night.  With plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the film, we suggest you make a picnic out of it! Try one of these cool takes on the traditional picnic basket; for the wine aficionado, try this backpack from Wine Enthusiast, which comes with 4 acrylic glasses, a cheese board and knife, and other picnic essentials. A family on the go would enjoy this easy insulated picnic cooler, with space for keeping everyone’s favorite snacks cold.  For date night, nothing is more perfect than this adorable heart shaped picnic basket in traditional woven rattan.

Of course, nothing goes better with your pre-packed picnic than some burgers fresh from the grill! Fire up some dinner on our patio space’s new gas grills before choosing your perfect spot,  then settle in to enjoy the film under the stars.
