Gary Hill, Director of Parks and Recreation, said the first two films were well received. “There were over 40 at the first movie,” he said. “The second one was even better. As it was outside, there were several cars with more than one person, so we don’t know exactly how many there were there, but there were more than the first movie.”

On Friday, May 21, the movie will begin at 8 p.m. at Burnt Corn Park. It stars Eddie Murphy as a father who is torn between his job and his family. It eventually leads him into his daughter’s world of imagination.

On Friday, June 4, the movie will begin at 8:15 p.m. and will be outside at Dogwood Hills. It will be a modern futuristic disaster film starring John Cusack and Amanda Peet.

On Saturday, June 19, the movie will be a part of the Blueberry Festival celebration and will be followed by fireworks. The movie will begin at 8:15 p.m. and will be preceded by a presentation of the Brewton Leadership of the movie screen and projector. After the presentation, the featured movie will be a popular Tom Hanks comedy-drama with close ties to Alabama.
