MOUNT OLIVE, NEW JERSEY - One of the year's most highly rated family films, "Iron Will," will be the featured movie when the International Trade Center Alliance hosts its second annual Outdoor Movie Night on Friday, May 16th.
Sponsored by Picatinny Federal Credit Union and Bright Horizons Family Solutions in partnership with the ITCA, Outdoor Movie Night is a step back in time with its drive-in like atmosphere.
The PG rated "Iron Will", starring Mackenzie Astin, Kevin Spacey, David Ogden Stiers, will be shown on a 2-story inflatable movie screen beginning at sundown.
"Iron Will" is a rousing Disney dog-sled adventure based on a real life event -- a 522-mile dog-sled race between Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and St. Paul, Minnesota.
Will Stoneman, played by Mackenzie Astin, is the teenage son of farmers. When Will's father dies, he is left alone to take care of his mother and their land. Needing money to maintain it, he decides to join a cross country dogsled race. This race will require days of racing for long hours, through harsh weather and terrain. This young man will need a lot of courage and a strong will to complete this race.
In addition to the movie, families can enjoy face-painting, a crafts table and other family oriented activities at no further cost. And all children will have their chance to participate in KidShots before the movie starts to get their image on the big screen!
Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets and a picnic dinner. Seating is first come first serve and all seats are lawn seats.
The event will take place in the parking lot of 850 Clark Drive in the International Trade Center. Attendees should arrive between 7:30 and 8pm. The movie will begin at sundown (approximately 8pm).
