Last summer movie Aug. 3

The last movie in the Movies in the Park Summer Movie Series will be “Akeelah and the Bee” starring Lawrence Fishburne, Angela Bassett and Keke Palmer.

Caffery Park will open at 7:15 p.m., and the movie will begin at dusk on Saturday, Aug 3.

Movie goers are allowed to bring blankets and chairs to sit on; however, no ice chests or alcohol will be allowed in the park. Additionally, the only animals allowed in the park are service animals for the disabled.

Mayor Raymond Harris said, “This is the last weekend before school starts, which is the perfect time to enjoy a movie with the kids. Families can end the summer with the memory of a movie together.”

There will be vendors selling beverages, sweets and popcorn. Attendees are encouraged to spray themselves for mosquitoes.
