HOOVER – Free Friday Flicks at Veterans Park off Valleydale Road in Hoover began June 2 with the film “Sing.”

The movie series, which is being held at Veterans Park for the fifth year, continues every Friday through July 21 with a rain date scheduled for July 28 in case one of the other dates are cancelled because of inclement weather.

Free movies start at dusk each week and are shown on a 30-foot screen set up in the park.

Attendees can arrive early, beginning at 6:30 p.m., and enjoy activities for children and Little Caesar’s pizza.

The schedule for the rest of the summer includes “Moana” on June 9, “The Secret Life of Pets” on June 16, “The BFG” on June 23, “The LEGO Batman Movie” on June 30, “The Jungle Book” (2016) on July 7, “Finding Dory” on July 14 and “Trolls” on July 21.

Backyard Movie Parties started the movie event 24 years ago at Caldwell Park. Later, they moved it to Homewood before ending up in Hoover.
