The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will host the final Family Movie Night at Joyner Park of 2019 this Saturday, Aug. 10, at 8:30 p.m. The featured film will be “Bumblebee.”
Each Family Movie Night includes a movie-related pre-show activity for kids. The theme for Saturday’s pre-show activity will be “More than Meets the Eye.” Beginning at 7:15 p.m., children 12 and under are invited to enjoy a variety of arts and crafts activities and have their pictures taken with a robot. Please note: Bumblebee and Optimus Prime were originally scheduled to attend but unavailable due to an interplanetary conflict.
Presented by Walters Insurance Agency, Inc. and Mosquito Joe of Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park feature a variety of family-friendly film favorites and genres, including comedies, dramas and thrillers, all projected on a 26-foot inflatable movie screen in the park’s amphitheater, located at 701 Harris Road. Showtime for each event is 8:30 p.m. Anyone planning to attend is urged to arrive early as viewing space may be limited.
Family Movie Nights are free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or chairs but are reminded that alcohol, smoking and unleashed pets are prohibited. Assorted food vendors will be on site selling snacks and refreshments.
