Ernest Goes To Camp

Directed by
John Cherry

Our annual Movies Under The Stars collaboration with Ijams Nature Center returns with another batch of offbeat classics screened on Ijams’ spacious lawn. Come join us for this year’s kickoff, the family comedy classic Ernest Goes To Camp, while you enjoy food trucks, cold beer and the stunning Ijams campus. (Ijams is located at 2915 Island Home Ave just south of the river.)

Doors open at 7pm, movie begins at dark (~8:30). Food trucks and beer garden will have tasty meals, snacks, beverages available for purchase. No coolers or outside alcohol are allowed. Dogs must be on leash at all times. This event happens on the front lawn near the Visitor Center; in case of inclement weather, we will move the event indoors. Ijams awards full refunds for any cancellations up to 7 days before an event, or if Ijams cancels a program due to severe weather.

Tickets are $8 per person or $25 for a family 4-pack, available at the link below or at the event. Movies Under The Stars 2019 is sponsored by Computer Systems Plus and Toby’s Kettle Corn.

Ernest, a lovable loser who works as a summer camp handyman and dreams of becoming a guidance councilor, must find a way to inspire a group of juvenile delinquents as well as stop a shady strip mining company from closing the camp.
