Star time

With summer temperatures on the rise, two outdoor movie events are ready to start in the cool of the evening.

■ The Glade Park Movies Under the Stars will show its first movie of the season on Friday at the back of the Glade Park Volunteer Fire Department on DS Road. “The BFG,” rated PG, is based on the children’s book with the same title by Roald Dahl.

The move starts at dusk, but the concession stand opens at 5:30 p.m., the grill at 6 p.m., and live entertainment will go on from 7–8 p.m. There will be hayrides, activities for kids and door prize drawings. This movie night is free to attend, but is a fundraiser for the volunteer fire department. No outside food is allowed.

The Glade Park Movies Under the Stars’ full schedule can be found at glade-park.com/movies-under-the-stars.html.

■ At the Movie Under the Stars on the lawn of the Grand Valley Recreation Center, 398 Arroyo Drive, in Battlement Mesa, “Finding Dory” will be shown Friday evening.

That film is rated PG and will be shown at sundown.

There will be popcorn, soda and candy to purchase and all kids will receive Dory bubbles.
