We love visiting Edaville especially during cranberry season. But ever since they opened Thomas Land we find ourselves visiting more than we used to. My youngest is a big fan of Thomas & Friends™.

CARVER, MASS. – August XX, 2017 – Edaville Family Theme Park, a renowned New England amusement park, today announced that they will be hosting an advance screening of the brand-new movie Thomas & Friends™: Journey Beyond Sodor featuring Downton Abbey and Harry Potter star Hugh Bonneville as the voice of a new engine named Merlin. At Edaville’s Thomas Land, visitors of all ages can discover the magic of Thomas & Friends, which provides the perfect venue for the movie screening taking place on August 19, 2017 at 7:30pm.
In the twelfth feature-length movie, Thomas leaves the Island of Sodor for the first time ever to travel to the mainland where he sees and experiences things that are beyond his wildest dreams. On his epic journey Thomas befriends the Experimental Engines, Lexi, Theo and Merlin, who look like no engines he has seen before. After spotting a magical-looking place on the horizon, Thomas stumbles into the Steelworks, where he meets two engines, Frankie and Hurricane, who aren’t quite what they seem. When James comes to find Thomas and gets trapped in the Steelworks, it’s up to Thomas and his newfound friends to rescue James and prove that friendship always wins!
At this special film screening, Edaville invites guests to join Thomas in a tale of daring escapes, heroic rescues, and to discover that true friendship comes in all shapes and sizes. The park will be open after hours for the screening, which will be held in Edaville’s event field. To add to the excitement, Edaville will have a local DJ on site to emcee the premiere.
“Thomas Land is a must-see destination for Thomas & Friends fans of all ages, coming from far and wide” said Edaville Family Theme Park owner Jon Delli Priscoli. “It serves as the ideal backdrop for this advance screening of Journey Beyond Sodor, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy the movie while immersed in the world of Thomas & Friends.”
For the screening, the event field can accommodate up to 400 guests on the lawn. Guests can stay in the park until movie time or leave the park and return for the screening. Regular hours during August are 10am–6pm. Any guests who purchase daytime admission tickets will have access to the park for the showing and will not be charged an additional fee.
Edaville will carry the Thomas & Friends™: Journey Beyond Sodor DVD and merchandise in the Knapford Gift Co. shop beginning on the on-sale date of the DVD on August 22, 2017. The film will also be available for purchase at the event, giving attendees the opportunity to be the very first to own the family adventure on DVD.
