Doko Meadows Park amphitheater

Blythewood area families can take advantage of some fun, free entertainment this summer with monthly outdoor movie nights in Doko Meadows Park. The event is the brainchild of local resident Erica Page, a mortgage officer with Guaranteed Rate Affinity and a member of the town’s planning commission.

“Last summer during COVID there was nothing for families to do on weekends, so we did a drive-in movie on private property,” Page explained.

That effort was successful enough to encourage the town to partner with Page on a series of Saturday night movies this year, starting in April. “Attendance was very good at the last two,” said Page.

The free movies start at sunset on a large screen in the park’s amphitheater, and at least one food truck and one “dessert” truck such as ice cream or Italian ice will be on hand about an hour beforehand, Page said.

The family-friendly lineup includes:

June 26 — Jumanji

July 17 — UP

Aug. 28 — to be determined

Sept. 18 — Secret Life of Pets

Oct. 23 — Addams Family (tentative)

Page said each movie night also features a local charity, offering attendees an opportunity to contribute supplies or make financial donations. The focus of the June movie night will be Epworth Children’s Home.
