Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire
Posted at 11:44 AM, Jul 08, 2024

Come enjoy a free Movie In The Park on Friday, July 12, 2024, at Gibson Park. The event was originally scheduled for June 28, but was postponed due to weather.

The movie this time is "Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire," the fifth film in the supernatural comedy "Ghostbusters" franchise.

From the movie website:

In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an army of ghosts that casts a death chill upon the city, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

The movie will begin a little before 9:30 pm (as soon as it is dark enough) near the bandshell in Gibson Park.

The movie is free, so grab the lawn chairs or a blanket and take the family to the park for an evening under the stars.

The family-friendly event will also include fun activities including face painting (7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.).

There will be snacks available for purchase at the Snack Shack.

Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy a movie under the stars.
