On Thursday, July 6, 800 people spread out on the great lawn at Patterson Park to watch Aladdin. Neighbor Isabelle Headrick said “That was a magical experience; I have never seen so many people enjoying our park!” The free screening was part of Movies in the Park, a series hosted by Austin Parks Foundation in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse and presented by Carvana.
The screening of Aladdin had been reschedule twice because of weather, but the third time was the charm. It was a beautiful evening, with an almost full moon. There was a lot of cheering and quoting/singing along, especially at Jasmine’s line “I am not a prize to be won” and “A Whole New World.”
The Mmmpanadas and East Side King food trucks were at Patterson to provide snacks, and everyone had a great time. Many thanks to APF and Alamo for bringing this event to our neighborhood park!
