The Croton Point Park parking lot will be transformed into a drive-in theater, presenting The Addams Family (PG, 2019) on Friday, October 9, and Goosebumps (PG, 2015) on Saturday, October 10, allowing movie-goers to enjoy classic, family-friendly films in a socially-distanced way.
The movies are presented by New York-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital as part of Westchester County Parks’ Screenings under the Stars series.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “This year we have established socially distant drive-in movies as another desirable form of family-friendly entertainment, and we are delighted to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital in presenting two classic fall movies at Croton Point Park. I am grateful for the generosity of our partners who make such programming possible for the families of Westchester.”
“NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital is pleased to sponsor this socially distanced Halloween family activity. We believe in and support the communities we serve and look forward to partnering with Westchester County on other family friendly programs in the future,“said Stacey Petrower, President of NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital.
The Addams Family tells the story of an eccentrically macabre family that moves to a bland suburb where Wednesday Addams' friendship with the daughter of a hostile and conformist local reality show host exacerbates conflict between the families. In Goosebumps, a teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R. L. Stine after the writer's imaginary demons are set free on the town of Madison, Delaware.
Both movies will be ticketed-admission events, with purchase available by online pre-sale only.
