Bensenville, Ill.— Due to technical difficulties onsite, the Bensenville Park District postponed its showing of the Disney film, “Encanto,” until dusk on Friday, June 23, at DiOrio Park, located at the intersection of Memorial and Barron in Bensenville.
The showing of “Encanto” is a free event, open to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to create a cozy and comfortable viewing experience. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase refreshments on-site to satisfy their cravings.
The event is the second in the five-film movie in the park series, a beloved tradition that brings neighbors and families together for an evening of entertainment under the stars. The visually stunning and heartwarming “Encanto” follows the May 13 drive-in movie presentation of “Happy Gilmore” at White Pines Golf Club, and it will be followed by a presentation of “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” at Varble Park July 15, the dive-in movie presentation of “Jaws” on August 5 at the Bensenville Water Park and the movie at the farm presentation of “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” at Fischer Farm August 26.
The movie in the park series is a part of the park district’s “Park ‘n Play” initiative, which brings more than 50 events to neighborhood parks throughout the summer.
