'Movies in the Park' returns to Brunswick
BRUNSWICK — The "Movies in the Park" series is returning for a second summer at Nathaniel Davis Park on Pleasant Street.
The series is hosted by the NorthWest Brunswick Neighborhood Association, and will begin with a screening of J.J. Abram's 2009 film, "Star Trek," on Thursday, June 20.
Screenings of "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "We Bought a Zoo" will then follow on July 18 and August 15, respectively.
"Davis Park is a natural amphitheater with trees on three sides. It's a perfect setting for outdoor movie watching," said NWBNA board member Louise Rosen, who organized the screenings with fellow board member Laura Lienert.
Lienert said last summer's two screenings attracted a total of more than 500 people, and she expects this year's events to be just as crowded.
Free parking is available at Atlantic Regional Federal Credit Union on Cushing Street.
"Movies in the Park" is a collaboration with the Brunswick Parks & Recreation Department with major funding from the Gelato Fiasco, Coastal Orthopedics and Priority Real Estate Group. Additional support comes from a Nathaniel Davis Fund grant, the Tondreau Corporation/Liz & George Glover, El Camino/Flipside, Frontier Cafe & Cinema and other local businesses and individuals.
Rain dates will be on the following Sundays for each event.
