2017 Top of the Park Movie Lineup Announced

Ann Arbor Summer Festival has announced their 2017 Top of the Park Movie Lineup. Coincidentally, the 2016 lineup was announced on a snow day and the 2017 lineup is announced on a day with a dusting of snow (a definite rarity for the winter of 2017).

2017 Top of the Park Movie Lineup

There are lots of great family-friendly movies scheduled for Top of the Park this year. There are both new movies like Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find ThemDoctor Strange, Hidden Figures, and classic movies like Groundhog Day, Men in Black, Beetlejuice, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I know we will definitely be checking out many of these movies.

My family loves attending Top of the Park, particularly when we can meet up with friends. My daughter and I particularly enjoy seeing the movies. On the other hand, my husband doesn’t like the late hour of the movies since he has to work the next day. This year, we will have the same problem for the first week of Top of the Park since it starts before Ann Arbor Public Schools are on summer break.

Traditionally Ann Arbor Summer Festival has kicked off on the last day of school for Ann Arbor Public Schools. Unfortunately with the way the school calendar fell this year and last year, Ann Arbor Public Schools will be in school later this year and Ann Arbor Summer Festival will start the week before school lets out. This is a shame since some movies on school nights now include Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them, Doctor Strange, and Groundhog Day all of which I would have considered taking my 11 year old to see if she didn’t have school the next day. We’ll see what we decide since it’s the last week of school.

Our Experiences at Top of the Park

We love attending Top of the Park. On nights that we plan to see the movie, we typically have dinner at home and arrive around 9p. Check out our Review from attending a Top of the Park movie in 2014. Even if we don’t stay for the entire movie, my daughter enjoys watching part of the movie. Since we have many of the movies on DVD or accessible via Netflix or Amazon Prime, we’ll continue watching the movie the next day.

Snacks are available at Culinary Row. The 2017 Food Vendors have not yet been announced, but you can usually buy drinks, ice cream, popcorn, and cotton candy. Personally, I’m hopeful that Slows BBQ will return for the nights that we have dinner at Top of the Park.

All of the movies for Top of the Park are now on our Event Calendar. While most of the movies are rated PG and PG-13, I did include the R-Rated Good Morning, Vietnam for completeness. The movie lineup is listed below:
