City’s summer movies set under the stars
The City of Brewton Parks and Recreation has made plans to continue summer movies for the community, but is making a change in venue.
Officials with the department announced last week that the summer movies will continue through July 26, with some of the best yet to come.
The remainder of the movies are scheduled to be shown at Dogwood Hills on the large outdoor screen beginning at dusk — typically around 8 p.m. officials said.
Movie buffs are invited to bring lawn chairs, a blanket and some snacks and enjoy the movie.
The showings are free to the public.
On Friday, June 28, the movie will be “The Hobbit” taken from the popular childrens stories written by J. R. Tolkien.
Due to the Fourth of July holiday there will be no movie shown on July 5.
On Friday, July 12, the movie will be “Lincoln” made and released in 2012. It is about the last four months of President Abraham Lincoln’s life, and opened with critical acclaim in theaters.
On Friday, July 19, the movie will be “The Hunger Games,” a 2008 science-fiction release.
The last movie of the summer will be shown Friday, July 26. “Madagascar 3, Europe’s Most Wanted,” is the madcap adventures of Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria as they romp through Europe looking for a way home to New York.
