[ARCHIVED] 06/29/2018 Experience cinema under the stars at Anderson Park this summer

The Bristol, Tennessee Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce a unique opportunity for families to enjoy the magic of the silver screen under the night sky at Anderson Park this summer. Friday Night Movie Night in the Park will present a new family friendly feature film each month from July through September.

The series kicks off with Hotel Transylvania on Friday, July 13th. Then, on Friday, August 10th, families will be able to enjoy the heartwarming Wonder. Finally, on Friday, September 14th, the series concludes with the award-winning Coco.

While the films may be the main attraction, there is plenty more fun to be had. Each movie night, pre-show activities such as face painting, bubble tables, sidewalk chalk, bean bag toss, and more will begin at 7:00PM. The movie screening will begin once the sun goes down at about 9:00PM. Everyone’s favorite movie concessions like popcorn, candy, and drinks will be available for purchase, but there is absolutely no cost to enjoy the movie or other activities.

Anderson Park is located at 341 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd in Bristol, TN. Families should plan to bring blankets and lawn chairs for seating. Friday Night Movie Nights in the Park will only be held as permitted by the weather. Patrons are encouraged to follow the City of Bristol, Tennessee on social media and to check the city’s website for weather related announcements or cancellations.
