    Are these well-attended? I understand why they need to go the G-rated route, but doesn’t the time of the movie suggest an older audience? Maybe the parents of the G-rated crowd just endure the envitable next day crankiness like sleepovers? Or maybe the teens don’t pay much attention to the movie? Just curious.

    Either you’re being sarcastic or you need to rewatch Sandlot.

    @M, yes, they are well-attended, but not overly so. The outdoor screen is set up in a corner (near the lap lane). Most of the kids (ages 8-13 or so) hang out in the water, usually on floats of some sort. They congregate up to that shallow corner like a flotilla. Huge floats aren’t allowed, as it is a safety risk. Parents are 20% or so in the pool, but mostly hang out reading their ipad/Nook/Kindle/book, checking cell phones, or catching up on their daily lives with each other. You’ll see a lot of Dads hanging out, giving the Moms some peace and quality time at home. For the kids, it’s more about “hanging in a pool while a movie is playing”. It really doesn’t matter what the movie is. It’s more of a social-oriented fun, family event than going and focusing on the movie plot.

    Yes, they are usually well-attended. But if you want to suggest a triple bill of Porky’s 1, 2, and 3 I’m sure the City Council will be all ears.

    @R – You’re right, the faux drowning scene has now resurfaced in my memory. But I still associate The Sandlot with baseball first. You’re killin’ me, smalls!
