A New Way to enjoy Screening Under the Stars

A ticketed, pre-sale event for the first time this year.

The Entergy Screenings Under the Stars outdoor movie series at Kensico Dam Plaza has been a staple of Westchester’s summer fun and entertainment scene for the past 16 years. And, this year for the first time, Kensico will be transformed into a drive-in, presenting The Secret Life of Pets (PG, 2019) on Friday, July 17 and Wonder Park (PG, 2019) on Friday, Aug. 14 allowing movie-goers to enjoy these two animated films in a socially-distanced way.

County Executive George Latimer said: “With COVID-19 still a reality, our Parks Department is coming up with new ways for county residents to experience parks and programs that they’ve come to enjoy over the years. Watching a movie from your car will be a novelty for some and nostalgic for others, but fun for everybody.”

The Secret Life of Pets 2 continues the story of Max and his pet friends, following their secret lives after their owners leave them for work or school each day. Wonder Park tells the story of an amusement park where the imagination of a wildly creative girl named June comes alive.

Both movies will be ticketed-admission events, with purchase available by online pre-sale only.

Tickets go on sale for The Secret Life of Pets on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 online at 2 p.m. at Tickets are $20 per car and there will be a 125-car limit due to capacity and distancing protocols. Wonder Park tickets will go on sale at the same link on Monday, July 20, also starting at 2 p.m..

Moviegoers will be asked to maintain a six-foot distance from others when exiting their vehicles, and to wear a mask at all times when outside their vehicles. No gatherings will be permitted. Exiting your vehicle will be permitted when using the restrooms; while sitting in your lawn chairs which must be placed up against the front or back of your vehicle; or while sitting in the bed of your pickup truck. Restrooms will be serviced routinely and hand sanitizer will be available.

Entergy Screenings Under the Stars is presented by Westchester County Parks and Sharc Creative with Westchester Parks Foundation, and support from Westchester Talk Radio, 100.7 WHUD, 107.1 The Peak, Rey Insurance, Hamlethub.
