Tijeras, NM (KKOB). – In an effort to provide opportunities for safe and responsible recreation to our community, the Village of Tijeras has been working to develop a Park and View cinema. We are pleased to announce that the inaugural showing will take place on Saturday, February 27th.
“I have been eager to find ways to bring our community together during these trying times,” Mayor Bruton said. “I believe the Park and View will be an exciting way to come together as a community while still following public health guidelines. We are very thankful for our community partners, such as PNM and GCC Rio Grande, for their support to get this event off the ground.”
This project would not have been possible without support from businesses and individuals in the community. In particular, we wish to extend special thanks to PNM and GCC Rio Grande. PNM very graciously donated six recycled utility poles from an upgrade project they recently completed, which the Village used to construct the screen for the Park and View. “Although PNM is an energy company, we enjoy providing additional support to our communities in ways other than power when we can,” said Pat Vincent-Collawn, president, CEO and chair of PNM. “The collaboration on this project with the Village of Tijeras is a creative solution and we are so proud to have been able to play a small part with the Park and View theater.” GCC Rio Grande made a generous donation to the project. Plant manager Ramses Maldonado stated, “GCC is happy to support a project that will bring happiness to our Tijeras Village!”
The Park and View will kick off at 7:00 p.m. on February 27th with a showing of Forrest Gump. The second showing will be The Goonies on Saturday, March 13th at 7:00 p.m. Reserve your ticket by calling 505-281-1220 or visiting this link. Tickets are $10 per car, paid in cash the night of the showing. We encourage you to reserve your ticket early, as current public health guidelines allow a maximum of 80 vehicles and we expect to sell out quickly.
