Last November, Ang Lee’s ferociously gorgeous Life of Pi roared into theaters, and Thursday night, Richard Parker & Co. will headline the penultimate edition of Movies in the Park.
If you or your family missed out on the Oscar-lauded film in its original release, seeing the SFX extravaganza on the park’s makeshift big-screen might be your best bet for fully taking in the film’s grandeur (sans the 3-D effect seen in theaters).
Life of Pi’s a fun one to watch and debate, and even if the film’s third act creates some stirring discussion, all can appreciate the pastel-heavy production design and strong performance from lead Suraj Sharma.
And in case you’re wondering, there will be face painters on-site, so if you or your youngster want your faces painted like a tiger, you're in luck! The evening would be incomplete without a couple of tiger-mimicking whippersnappers running around, chasing after the attending younger siblings/canines.
If you and the household can join in, the fun starts at 4 p.m., with Life of Pi starting at sunset.
