First Things First, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening marriages and families, celebrates the 10th Anniversary of Movies in the Park at its new location for 2012 on AT&T Field.
For the last decade, Movies in the Park has been a summertime tradition that encourages families to spend quality time together while watching a family-friendly box office hit on a giant inflatable movie screen under the stars.
“The first year of Movies in the Park was to celebrate First Things First’s 5th Anniversary and to say ‘thank you’ to the community for embracing the importance of building strong families,” said Julie Baumgardner, president and executive director of First Things First. “Here we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Movies in the Park this year along with the 15th Anniversary of First Things First. Through the years, over 150,000 people have experienced the magic of Movies in the Park. We are excited to partner with the Chattanooga Lookouts this year to offer this event to the community. Come out and join us.”
This event is free to the public on Saturday, July 7, and Saturday, July 14. Gates open at 7 p.m. and the movie will start each week at sundown (just after 9 p.m.) Families are welcome to bring blankets, play with their kids in the outfield or enjoy a seat in the stands.
There are a few changes this year. No chairs or strollers are allowed on the field. There will be a place to park strollers. Concessions stands will be open each movie night and available on the field, but no outside food or beverage will be allowed inside the ballpark.
Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
We can’t reveal the names of the movies, but here are some hints:
July 7 – A swashbuckling cat must clear his name with the help of an egg head and some magic beans.
July 14 – A bear with a flair for martial arts must once again save his homeland from…an evil peacock?
