Portland Parks & Recreation’s Dive-In Movies Combine Swimming and Cinema


(Portland,OR) –

Nothing says summer like swimming and blockbuster movies. Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R)’s Aquatics is combining the two, offering exciting cinema with its “Dive-In Movies”.

You’ll enjoy watching this summer’s movie The Lorax on a large screen visible from on the deck or IN the warm pool itself! Floating filmgoers may bring their own inner tubes or air mattresses.

The low cost for Dive-In Movies is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children (at Wilson Pool only – children are $4). The pool water is heated for comfortable viewing. Extra underwater lighting and nationally recognized PP&R lifeguards will be brought in to ensure safety. And like all good theaters, the pools will offer popcorn, caramel corn, hot chocolate and other concessions for purchase – without the sticky floor!

The Lorax will be shown at the following pools, dates and times:

Montavilla Pool 8219NE Glisan August 21 8:00pm

Creston Pool SE 44th & Powell August 22 8:00pm

Wilson Pool 1151SW Vermont August 23 8:00pm

Sellwood Pool 7951 SE 7th August 24 8:00pm

Grant Pool 2300 NE 33d Ave August 25 8:00pm

For more information on Dive-In Movies or other PP&R Aquatics Special Events, call any of the above pools or the Aquatics Division at (503) 823-5130.
