Whittier Hosts Super Hero Movie Night

Anthony Moreno

The City of Whittier hosted its first Super Hero Movie Night recently. Held at Parnell Park families got to enjoy a special night under the stars! The Whittier Youth Network (WYN) Club screened Disney/Pixar’s The Incredibles. Just in time for the superhero family sequel which has been 14 years in the making.

The night had many fun activities for the little superheroes of the family. Superhero training was hosted by Spiderman and Wonder Woman from 5-7:30 just before the film started. Spidey and Wonder Woman were brought there by Whittier based company PicMe Entertainment.

Arts and Crafts stations were set up throughout the park. You could create your own super hero mash and badge. Superhero badges were created by matching your first and last initials to a list of famous comic phrases. Some special names seen at the event were Phantom X, Green Surfer, and Doctor Justice. Masks were in many different colors to hide ones identity in style. Face Painting was another fun part of the night. The kids were able to choose between Iron Man, Batman, Thor, Spiderman, and more!

Obstacle courses were set up where the tikes could race Spiderman to see who the better hero really is. Spidey hilariously let all the kids beat him and made sure they saw just how tired out he was after the race. Wonder Woman was seen holding hands with many loving fans and taking a stroll throughout the park. Spidey also had what seemed to be the entire park running alongside him throughout Parnell Park.

There were plenty options to get a snacking in. Mustache Mike’s Italian Ice Cream was on hand to cool you down before dusk. Kettle Corn was being cooked all night, the perfect combo to match movies at the park. Mr. Dog’s food truck brought the “best dogs in town!” Including the TJ Dog, Pineapple Dog, Asada Nachos, and Pastrami Fries.

The WYN Club also put up art installations from all the different schools where they are located. Sheets were set up where kids from schools in the district recreated a Jackson Pollock piece. Van Gogh themed paintings were posted all over the park as well recreating many of his famous pieces. Warhol taught the kids how to screen print their own works of art! Prints of Supreme logos, Avengers heroes, and Harry Potter characters were the most common pieces with the sometimes uncommon McDonalds fries. There were also many games available for the kids. Giant Jenga, Connect Four, and Tic Tac Toe were all set up for enjoyment.

The WYN Club will host many more movie nights over the summer. Every first Saturday of the month a new FREE night under the stars will take place. On June 2, Wonder will premiere, July 7, Parnell Park will host Beauty & The Beast, August 4, A Dog’s Purpose comes to town, and on September 1 A Galaxy Far Far Away will come to Whittier with a showing of The Last Jedi.
