Sundance: Movies in the Park

Warm, balmy summer nights are perfect for a movie under the stars, and at the Sundance master-planned community in Beaumont, residents enjoy two nights of fun, camaraderie and free movies each summer. This summer, Sundance at Sunset will feature two family- favorite animated movies– How To Train Your Dragon on July 23rd at Mountain View Park and Toy Story 3 on August 20th at Wildflower Park. The free movies under the stars are hosted by the Sundance Community Association and Pardee Homes and are open to the public. We hope to see you there!

Have to have popcorn with a movie!

The place
Come as early as 6 p.m. and picnic in the park. There will be two friendly, face-painting clowns, a fun jump and a refreshment stand selling hot dogs, fresh popped popcorn, candy and beverages. And the kids can enjoy all the amenities of the community park while they await the start of the movie at dark. Both of Sundance’s parks have plenty of grassy open space for kids to run and play, plus tot lots and basketball courts.

The movies
Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, How to Train Your Dragon is the story of a Viking teenager whose world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
Toy Story 3™ is the 2010 comedy-adventure that welcomes back Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the whole gang as they deal with an uncertain future as their owner, Andy, prepares to leave for college.

How to get there
The thriving master-planned community of Sundance is ideally located off I-10 in Beaumont and features a number of residential neighborhoods, two community parks, two elementary schools and the Albert Chatigny Community Recreation Center. Sundance is easy to find from Interstate 10; exit I-10 at Highland Springs Avenue and head north and follow the signs.
