'Movies in the Park' starts June 2.


The City of Milton will host a series of free family movies on the side lawn at Northwestern Middle School this summer, said Special Events Coordinator Angela Thompson.

The "Movies in the Park™ - City of Milton presented by Southern Outdoor Cinema, Sponsored by Northside Hospital Forsyth" series will kick off Saturday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m. with a showing of "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked."

The series continues July 7 with "The Three Stooges" and Aug. 4 with a third film to be determined. All three movies will be shown at the school, located at 12805 Birmingham Highway (click here for directions).

At sundown the film will be shown on Southern Outdoor Cinema's huge, two-story inflatable movie screen in high-definition. Before the film there will be a fun, festival atmosphere with face painting, an inflatable moonwalk and tons of children's activities.

Concessions will be available, so just bring your lawn chair, blanket and bug spray.

"We've had success with a single movie and a summer concert series in the past," said Thompson. "It just seemed like a perfect fit to continue this tradition with a movie series aimed at providing local families with a fun, free night out."
