FIN OUTDOOR

( FORMERLY THE OUTDOOR FILM EXPERIENCE )

 

PRESENTS

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR ANOTHER

SUCCESSFUL FIN OUTDOOR!

 

The 19th annual FIN Outdoor summer movie series presented four iconic Jim Henson Studios films at the historic Halifax Public Gardens; June 29, July 6, July 13 and July 20. Although a theme as beloved amongst both children and adults as SUMMER OF HENSON needs no other justification, it was 60 years ago from 2018 that Jim and Jane Henson founded Muppets, Inc.

 

In addition to the screenings at the Halifax Public Gardens, FIN Outdoor was thrilled to take outdoor summer movies on the road for the first time in its history, beginning with Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. One late summer weekend, FIN Outdoor put up its 30-foot inflatable and screened movies on both Friday, August 10 and Saturday, August 11. The program featured Atlantic Canadian award-winner and local favourite, MAUDIE, followed by a taste of the “Summer of Henson” with the original, THE MUPPET MOVIE.

 

We are happy to welcome Feed Nova Scotia back to the Halifax Public Gardens for FIN Outdoor.
