Friends, snacks, great weather & a movie = perfect recipe for an outdoor summer night! Something for everyone.

Last Friday night was the perfect night for an outdoor movie!

With the closing of the school year, and with everyone looking forward to the relaxed feel of summer days and evenings, the St. Thomas Cultural Committee held its first annual Outdoor Movie Night on June 24th. More than 70 people came to St. Thomas Armenian Church’s barbecue and movie under the stars, to watch the family-friendly feature film “Night at the Museum.”

What is better than popping open your beach chair or laying down your blanket on a beautiful grass lawn and ready to enjoy a movie? Being at St. Thomas Armenian Church, where there is the scent of barbecue in the air, the crackling of a bonfire in the distance, the sound of children playing on the playground and having fun with their friends, and you watching the sun set behind the trees as you enjoy a great movie with your good friends!

It really was a fantastic evening. The weather could not have cooperated more, and everyone was happy to be spending a Friday night with their friends. John Torigian and Paul Bourghol grilled-up fresh hot dogs and hamburgers throughout the event, which started at 7pm and lasted past 11pm. Members of the Cultural Committee had prepared several snacks for sale as well, including all the summertime favorites like chips and popcorn, regular and fruit salads, and ice cream. Kids even had lots of fun making and enjoying their favorite flavors of snow-cones after having some fun on the church playground.
