CARTOON NETWORK SPLASHES INTO NEW YORK WITH SECOND ANNUAL DIVE-IN THEATER TOUR; Cartoon Network to Premiere New Cartoons to a Swimming Pool of Kids
Cartoon Network will host a DIVE- IN THEATER at Riverbank State Park Aquatics Complex in New York, N.Y., on Friday, August 9, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. DIVE-IN THEATER lets hundreds of families watch brand new cartoons on a giant 9 x 12 foot screen while relaxing in floating inner tubes and poolside lounge chairs. DIVE-IN THEATER is sponsored by 98.7 KISS FM and Time Warner Cable.
Guests will be treated to five never-before-seen cartoons from Cartoon Network Studio's "World Premiere Toons" series, an initiative that is turning out the cartoon superstars of tomorrow as witnessed by its numerous honors and awards such as two recently announced 1996 Emmy Nominations. In addition, DIVE-IN THEATER will feature a sneak preview trailer of "The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest," the all-new animated series from Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Inc. that will debut August 26 on Cartoon Network, TBS and TNT.
Cartoon Network's DIVE-IN THEATER transforms the Riverbank State Park Aquatics Complex into a kaleidoscope of color for one night. Visitors may either take their places in lounges and chairs that line the pool's deck or take advantage of the best seats in the house -- Cartoon Network inner tubes floating freely in the pool. Poolside festivities will include roaming costumed cartoon characters posing for pictures, free pizza, a "Cartoon Network Wacky Wheel" that rewards winners with Cartoon Network merchandise and other prizes.
