‘Frozen’ is the featured film for this Saturday evening, with a FREE showing at 7pm at the Lamar Community Building. The event will cap a weeklong series of community weigh-ins on ideas to help develop the City of Lamar’s, Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan.

Can You Spare a Little Air?

Can You Spare a Little Air?

The movie had been scheduled to be shown this Saturday at Escondido Park, but as our weather can be equal parts winter and spring in the same day, it was decided to move the movie indoors to the Lamar Community Building.

As well as the movie, the audience should get a kick out of looking at the inflatable, portable movie screen that was purchased by the Healthy Places Initiative funding. One screen was rented and first used last year during the family day at Willow Creek Park, sponsored by LiveWell Colorado. It was such a hit, the group decided to purchase a screen that can be used for years to come for the community.

According to Matt Neuhold from Parks and Recreation, the total unit weights around a hundred pounds, but can be inflated in under three minutes, once it’s secured to the ground or support structures. The air pump has to be kept on, as anyone who has an inflatable Santa Claus decoration knows, but the speaker system at the Lamar Community Building is more than sufficient to provide the audio for the cartoon movie this Saturday. FREE popcorn too! The screen is about 20 feet tall and is 14 feet wide.

Two other Saturday features are set for community residents with the ‘Painting at Parkview Playground’ starting at 1pm, weather permitting. Wear old clothes and grab a paintbrush. The Lamar Library is also conducting an Open House from 10am to 2pm on Saturday.
