Dive in Movies

by Luke Osteen

Highlands Swimming Pool will screen movies at 6:30 P.M. on the first Fridays in January and February, as part of its Dive In Movie Series.

Not all of us get the chance to jet away to an exotic spa to refresh and re-energize ourselves as this winter drags on.

But the good people at the Highlands Rec Park’s Swimming Pool have just the tonic for you, It’s a lot cheaper and a lot easier than heading for a resort far from the Plateau. And you can indulge yourself in the company of your family and friends. Though the movies hadn’t been selected by the time we went to press, you can be assured that the choices will be family-friendly.

Make an appointment on your calendar for the Dive In Movies set for January 3 and February 7.

The pool opens at 6:30 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 this chilly season.

If you’re still not sure, look at Dr. Patti Wheeler’s Heart-Healthy Tips on Page 76. See that part about exercise? A doctor is prescribing this!

Perhaps a spa experience at a fancy resort can top this, but we’re not so sure. For more information, call (828) 526-1595.
