Bringing the silver screen outdoors
Marshfield’s Movies in the Park nights announced
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — The Movies in the Park committee recently announced its summer outdoor movie night schedule for 2016.
This year’s kickoff movie is held in conjunction with the Dairyfest Picnic in the Park event, which is Friday, June 3, at Columbia Park. The featured movie is “The Peanuts Movie.”
The second event takes place at Marshfield Fairgrounds Park, next to the dog park, on June 24 and features the popular “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This is a drive-in style movie, and a general seating area will also be available.
The third outdoor screening helps kick off Hub City Days in downtown Marshfield on July 29. The movie “Up” will be shown that evening on Central Avenue between Third and Fourth Streets.
The fourth and final event takes place at Columbia Park on Aug. 12, when the featured movie will be “Pitch Perfect 2.”
All movie nights are free and will be shown outdoors on a large inflatable screen. Concessions will be available on the grounds and benefit various community organizations at each event.
