Those of you out there who are familiar with the way I do things as Programming Director for both Enzian and the Florida Film Festival are probably aware that I don’t like to repeat myself. Whether it’s selecting jurors for the FFF or programming for one of our mini-festivals, special events, or free Popcorn Flicks in the park, I make a conscious effort to always bring something new to the table and offer something the community hasn’t had a chance to experience before on the big screen at Enzian or outdoors under the stars.
In an unusual turn of events though, this summer brings encore performances of two of the more popular Popcorn Flicks from just this past year–both rentals from organizations which knew exactly what films they wanted to program. So fans of THE MUPPET MOVIE (1979) and THE PRINCESS BRIDE (1987) rejoice! In conjunction with the Orlando Rep Theater, Enzian takes its Popcorn Flicks show on the road once again (after the few months residency at the Sanford Cinema in the Park series)–this time to Loch Haven Park in Orlando on the evening of Saturday, July 14, for a showing of Jim Henson’s Muppets’ very first feature film. And it’s back to Central Park in Winter Park on Wednesday night, August 22, for Rollins College’s orientation special event screening of Rob Reiner and William Goldman’s beloved swashbuckling fairy tale-adventure.
So mark your calendars, thank Orlando Rep and Rollins, and come out and see these two fun-filled family classics–again! It’s not like they don’t hold up on repeated viewings…
