Just can't stay away


I'm a tad biased...but everyone seems to enjoy themselves! People bring chairs, blankets, some bring dinner, others snacks, some bring their babies in carriages, others their pets. Free popcorn too!! The movies are on a large screen with 4 speakers surrounding the space where we show them. Even on a hot night there's usually a breeze from our big beautiful trees in the park. There are mosquitos, ambulances roaring by, loud cars occasionally, but if you look up there are stars in the sky and a great mix of your neighbors sitting next to you. Come a little early and share a snack with someone and you could make some new friends!!
Our full schedule is on www.filmsinvanvorst.com or you can send us your email address at vvpanews@gmail.com and I will put you on our email list.

Keeping our fingers crossed that the weather holds for tonite's Films in Van Vorst's showing of "THE IMPOSSIBLE"

In the meantime...check out a trailer for it at www.filmsinvanvorst.com.. Dramatic, touching, scary and heart warming all at the same time.

We will post here, on Facebook/VanVorstParkAssociation and on twitter @vvpajc if the weather gods do not cooperate!!

It was a great night again for Films in Van Vorst. Thanks to Parkman for making great popcorn, our volunteers who helped set up and take down our equipment, and to Pamela Pearl who talked with us about the casting process on a major motion picture--we could have talked for hours with her!! She gave us some great scoop on Ben Affleck..."Ben" to her. It's official. He's a nice guy!

Our next film in in 2 weeks July 10th.
"THE IMPOSSIBLE"
A regular family - Maria (Naomi Watts), Henry (Ewan McGregor) and their three kids - travel to Thailand to spend Christmas. They get an upgrade to a villa on the coastline. After settling in and exchanging gifts, they go to the pool, like so many other tourists. A perfect paradise vacation until a distant noise becomes a roar. There is no time to escape from the tsunami; Maria and her eldest are swept one way, Henry and the youngest another. Who will survive, and what will become of them?

Great film--and a true story...

See you in the Park!

Had the "Larry Tate" on GF crust Friday night from Two Boots. One word: DELISH!

It reminded me of Amy's Organic Rice crust GF pizza--which by the way is yummy as well.

Re: Bright street smells like S*%#*

We've lived on Bright Street for some 10 years and the flooding is continually getting worse with each year. Basement flooded in the past but now its raw sewage pouring in the last few bad storms. Really disgusting.

Downtown flooding is going to continue until there are changes to our ancient sewage system. It doesn't help that our city keeps giving the green light to developers that put yet more stress on an already burdened system citywide.

But that being said...I love Bright Street and I have some of the best neighbors in this town!!

I second Cohens--I was there yesterday and the doctor was great. You pay extra for retina test --but you can option out. The appointment which was for contacts was $99. Call for an appointment.

I've enjoyed Taqueria over the years and am sad to see the destruction caused by Sandy to so many businesses. There is however another Taqueria that my husband and I found a few weeks back on Morris Street btw Van Vorst & Warren called Viva Mexico Kitchen Cafe. Small place, byob- we really enjoyed our food--if you're having a craving...check them out. I do not in any way, shape or form know them or work for them! Just really liked what we had and liked the family run aspect of it--enjoy!!

Thanks to all of you who came and enjoyed with us an amazing summer of free movies and popcorn. We had scheduled a movie for the 19th but have decided to save the $$ since our turnout was very low last week...and well, happily, i guess, summer is over! There may be one more movie up our sleeve, if your are on our email list you will hear about it...join our list at vvpanews@gmail.com.

Thanks to all the volunteers, your neighbors, that came early to set up and stayed late to clean up. Thanks to Marc Wesson and Friends of Van Vorst Park for setting up and donating the popcorn this summer. Thank you to the City of Jersey City for giving us permission and insurance to use the park. And a special special thanks to JERSEY CITY MEDICAL CENTER and SILVERMAN-BUILDING NEIGHBORHOODS. Their generous donations were the reason you all enjoyed free films all summer long...

We look forward to our 9th season next summer...

Roll credits.....

The End.

I was in the car adjacent to the one where the baby was born-- There was a frantic young man running thru our car asking for a doctor nurse ems...soon after we heard the announcement that we were going straight to 33rd street. And believe it or not...a young woman across from me was cursing the fact that we were skipping Christopher Street. I politely told her...you know someone is sick...show a little compassion. She rolled her eyes and kept cursing under her breath. I am so happy it all turned out well! It certainly was an exciting ride into the city for a Monday!!
