Looking for something different to do tonight? Alexandria’s Annual Comcast Film Outdoor Festival kicks off at dusk with the family favorite Coco. Tomorrow night will feature the blockbuster Wonder Woman. — an appropriate flick since the sequel is being filmed in Alexandria.
I reached out to Jennifer Deutsch with a few additional questions regarding this weekend’s festival. Here is our Q&A:
Q: Dog friendly?
A: The city/park rules are that all dogs must be on a leash. That said, the event will have lots of people of all ages, loud noises, etc. so I encourage owners to think about if their dog can handle that stressful setting before they bring them.
Q: Time of the show/s?
A: The shows begin whenever it gets dark outside. Typically this is around 8:30pm but it can be slightly before or slightly after. We encourage people to come early for the best seating.
Q: Should people bring chairs or blankets or both?
A: Both beach chairs and blankets are welcome! We ask that people with beach chairs sit towards the back.
Q: Picnics encouraged?
A: YES! Additionally, our charity, the Child and Family Networks Center will be selling concessions like popcorn, movie candy, soft drinks, etc.
