First Things First, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening marriages and families, welcomes the return of Movies in the Park to Coolidge Park each Saturday in the month of July beginning July 6.  Now in its eleventh season, Movies in the Park encourages families to spend quality time together while watching a family-friendly box office hit on a giant movie screen.  

This event is free to the public on July 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The movie will start each week at sundown (just after 9 p.m.) Families are welcome to bring picnic baskets, blankets, strollers or lawn chairs and watch a movie under the stars.  Concessions will be available for purchase on site.  Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

The names of the movies can't be published, but here are some helpful hints:

July 6 – Two out of work dads decide to open a child care center and get more than they bargained for. 

July 13 –   A misplaced worker from the North Pole heads to New York to find his true identity.

July 20 –   A flying boy who never grows up leads the Darling children on a wild adventure.
