Moonlight Movie Series Returns

July 21, 2012

For the second year in a row, “Movies Down East” will be taking place on Saturday [August 11] at the Shelly Bay Field. Like last year, it will feature a variety of young entertainers during Camparama, an annual showcase of students from all the Government Summer Day Camps.

Camparama will start at 6.00pm and the movie will screen at 9pm. Scheduled to be shown is the movie “Big Miracle”. Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.

Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend.

With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another and leads to a momentary thaw in the Cold War.

Parking will be available on-site and families can expect to be treated to several food vendors along with games, rides and activities in a relatively large Kiddie Land provided by Play Games Entertainment.

    Can it end earlier than 1.00 pm, its a long day for small children, last year people were leaving before the end, and the show about the young lady tht lost her arm to a shark was a bit tedious. But I love the concept!
