Dive-in Movies

by Ashley Stewart

“Peter Pan” returns for a second try at Highlands Swimming Pool’s Dive In Movies, 7:00 P.M. August 24.

Summer on the Plateau means rain, rain and more rain.

And thunderstorms.

The staff at the Highlands Pool takes lightning and thunderstorms very seriously. Even with the roof, lightning can strike the structure, sending electricity through the plumbing and electrical systems and making the water a dangerous place to be.

Back in June, their monthly Dive-In Movie had to be cancelled because of a storm. At 7:00 P.M. on August 2, they’ll replay the June selection: Disney’s “Peter Pan.” This family classic follows the adventures of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling as they join Peter Pan, his fairy sidekick Tinkerbell, and the tribe of Lost Boys in the fantasy world of Neverland. They encounter mischievous mermaids and treacherous pirates as they learn valuable lessons about growing up.

The pool opens at 6:30 on movie nights and the movie starts at 7:00. Admission is $5 and includes a bag of popcorn. The water is kept between 82 and 83 degrees, so it’s always comfortable. If you’d rather sit on the side, there are lounge chairs available and heaters to keep you warm in the cooler months. For more information, call (828) 526-1595.
