Outdoor Movies at Cinema Del Ray, VA 2014

Every summer when SCS Dad and I lived in Manhattan the city would host free movies in the parks. We remember NYC summers with so much joy! Thankfully D.C. hosts free outdoor summer movies as well! We were able to share our summer fun with Sam this year at the Cinema Del Ray in Alexandria VA! When we saw her favorite movie Frozen was scheduled, we loaded up the car and headed out. We got there early and ate at Los Tios Grill at their amazing outdoor seating area and delicious food! Then we headed over to the park with our picnic blankets, snacks, and sweatshirts. 
We got there nice and early so street parking was not hard to find. Neither was a nice spot close to the screen to lay out our blanket. There was a great playground right behind the park. 
Before the film started the kids danced and played in the open space. Everyone seemed to be enjoyed the fresh air and great weather. 
When the sun started to go down the park got packed! There were many people there with chairs, thankfully we were able to sit in the front so our view wouldn't be obscured. 
There were snacks, drinks, and face painting for sale. 
The community building behind the field was open and had a public restroom with baby changing areas.
