Until further notice, Middletown Township is hosting a movie night Thursday evening at the community park.

They’ll be screening the 2019 live action Aladdin movie, according to Parks and Recreation Director Paul Kopera. But in Middletown, Kopera says movie night is a bigger event than just the feature film.

“While the movie will start at about 8:15 p.m. when it gets dark, we have some pre-game activities, if you will.”

Kopera says these activities are set to start at 6:45.

“We have a gaga game that we set up, we have a brand new kick wall at the Middletown Country Club, we have our fabulous playground, and then we bring other activities out.

There will also be a hotdog vendor so parents can get a quick dinner for their children. Parks and Rec board members will then hand out free popcorn.

“Life is good,” said Kopera of how the evening should go for younger kids. “You get a movie, you get to run around.”

Parents also reap the benefit of their children running around for an hour and a half. Kopera noted typically, many of the younger kids tire themselves out and fall asleep 30 minutes into the films.

The event is sponsored by the Diane Loomis Real Estate Team of Langhorne.
