2016 Dive-In Movies return to pools this week - Minions (PG)


(Portland, OR) –

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R)’s Dive-In Movies, one of the biggest splashes of the summer, return this week with six all-ages showings of Minions at PP&R pools around town. Watch the family-friendly classic either from the pool deck or while floating in the pool itself. Pools are heated to warmer than normal for the evening viewing, to maintain a comfort level for people in the water.
