Surprise Aquatic Center Hosts Dive-In Movie Night Featuring 'Finding Dory'Source: Surprise Parks and Recreation

Surprise residents, mark your calendars for a splashing good time as the Surprise Aquatic Center turns movie theater for an evening. Disney Pixar's "Finding Dory" will be the star of the show on Saturday, June 8, making a splash poolside at this special Dive-In Movie night. Guests can float on in when the doors open at 7 p.m., with the film starting to reel around 7:30 p.m., according to a press release from City News.

In a city that's no stranger to quirky events, this one's definitely hooking the attention of families looking for a unique outing. Don't dwell on digging up extra cash for snacks – each pre-registered moviegoer scores a free popcorn ticket upon entry. Additional treats will be up for grabs at the concession stands, so hungry viewers won't be left high and dry. But a word to the wise: leave those pool noodles and inflatables at home. The center is drawing line at U.S. Coast Guard Approved floatation devices.

Those planning to attend should note that seating at the center, located at 15831 N. Bullard Ave., is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Organizers also extend a welcome mat for attendees to bring their own chairs for maximum comfort. This makes it easier to settle in, without the usual elbow-wrestling for a decent spot.

It's a ticketed affair, with Surprise residents able to snag a spot for a fin-saving $5, while non-residents will have to shell out $8. Anyone interested in securing their tickets can navigate to the city's recreation page or dial 623.222.2500 for more information.
