“Dive-In Movie” drawing rave reviews

We are happy to report our new resort activity, Dive-In Movie, has been a big success in its limited first run and will receive the star treatment with an extended engagement next summer. Dive-In Movie, a fun pairing of unlikely activities (going swimming and watching movies), debuted Oct. 8 with “Rush Hour 2,” the first in a series of Las Vegas-themed movies, on our giant poolside screen.

“People have really enjoyed it,” Tahiti Village general manager Mike Rounds said. “A lot of them asked why we haven’t been doing this all along.”

We screened “21” on Friday, Oct. 14, and “Ocean’s 13” on Oct. 21. For the last Friday of the month, Oct. 28, we’ll present a Halloween-themed movie (“Hocus Pocus”) in place of  the originally planned “Viva Las Vegas.” Weather permitting, we may extend Dive-In Movie through the first two weeks of November. We will conduct an email survey next year to let you help decide the movie lineup for next summer. Dive-In Movie is the result of feedback from owners requesting more pool activities.

Admission is free, and so is the popcorn and lemonade. We also have a limited Dive-In Movie menu from Tahiti Joe’s that includes hot wings, chili nachos, chicken quesadillas, pizza, candy and soda.

Swimming and a movie: We can’t think of a better way to spend a leisurely Friday evening at Tahiti Village. Showtime coincides with sunset, about 6:30 p.m. Stay tuned for its reopening next season.
