The asphalt pavement becomes an outdoor movie venue with the inflation of a giant silver screen and hook up of a state-of-the-art sound system. Guests are encouraged to bring camp chairs, chaise lounges or blankets to get comfy for the evening viewing.   Picnic food and non-alcoholic beverages are also encouraged.  No glass is allowed.  The movie viewing is FREE to the public.

In August, Get Reel goes with the theme of the month and becomes an official launch to the Ferndale Dream Cruise.  Scheduled for Third Thursday, August 15, the blockbuster “Grease” will be all about reminiscing the days of hot summers and hot cars.  The pre-show is likely to include a bubble_and_bark_ad_ferndale115few hand jive lessons and other related activities.
