New Family Movie Night at State Fair Expo Center
New York Ag Connection - 08/21/2019

The Great New York State Fair's Expo Center will host seven evenings of big screen movie entertainment. The new Family Movie Nights feature kid-friendly films that the entire family can enjoy. Movies will be shown on the Fair's 55-foot inflatable screen, provided by FunFlicks of Central, Western and Northern New York. All screenings are free of charge.

"This is our take on a drive-in movie experience. Families can come, grab a seat in the stands or on the turf field and laugh together to a great movie. We're always looking for new ways to help families have a memorable time at the Fair," said Troy Waffner, Fair Director.

The new Family Movie Nights begin Saturday, August 24 and run through Friday, August 30 and includes three films released this year. The full lineup:

- Aug. 24, 7 p.m.: The Incredibles 2 (PG);

- Aug. 25, 7 p.m.: Elf (PG), as part of the Fair's special event Christmas in August;

- Aug. 26, 6:30 p.m.: Miracle (PG);

- Aug. 27, 7 p.m.: Detective Pikachu (PG);
