Spring Creek Ranch will again host the Celestial Cinema Film Series in the beautiful Methow Valley this August, 2014. Located in Winthrop, WA, the series offers films for all ages, al fresco dining and fun kid activities under the brilliant blanket of August stars. Celestial Cinema also features “Methow-Made” specialty foods and beverages and benefits several non-profit groups that serve the local community.
Celestial Cinema will start on Thursday, August 21st with a showing of “Babe”, followed by “Grease” on Friday, August 22nd and the hit movie, “Frozen” will close the series on Saturday, August 23rd.
Spring Creek Ranch is an ideal locale for outdoor cinema and garden dining. The historic ranch is centrally located and set on a 60 acre expanse that boasts views of the majestic Cascade Mountains, lovely trails along the river and vast green fields. Already a destination for celebrations, weddings and vacations, Spring Creek now opens it’s gates with Celestial Cinema to everyone to explore and enjoy.
Film Series Director Sarah Berns designed the event to benefit both the Methow’s local community and visiting community. Each family focused film event will contribute a portion of proceeds to a Methow Valley non-profit organization. This year, proceeds from the first evening (Babe) will be donated to The Little Star Montessori School, proceeds from the second evening (Grease) will be donated to The Merc Playhouse and proceeds from “Frozen” will be donated to The Cove.
Berns shares, “my hope is to bring together residents and visitors of all ages beneath the starry skies, to dine al fresco, enjoy the magic of the Methow summer, and watch excellent films. I also want the festival to be about community coming together, which is why each film event will donate some income to one of our vital non-profit groups in the Methow. I want this festival to give back to people of the Methow who sustain our community.”
The timing of Celestial Cinema is excellent for outdoor film, in that August is the premier stargazing month in the Methow. August is well known for shooters, bright planets and views of constellations not seen at other times of year. Spring Creek Ranch is perfectly placed for celestial viewing with it’s wide open fields, rural location and extensive horizon.
