Drive-In Movie Featuring “Encanto”
CLIFTON, NJ – Grab the family and drive over to Main Memorial Park, located at Park Slope and Main Avenue, on Tuesday, August 2, 2022 for this year’s Drive-In Movie, sponsored by the Clifton Recreation Department.

The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal-every child except one, Mirabel. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.—Walt Disney Animation Studios.
