ALABASTER – Area residents looking to get outside this summer while enjoying some family friendly movies with their loved ones will have several chances to do so over the next couple of months during Alabaster’s Movies in the Park series.

The series will begin on Friday, June 7, and will be held on multiple Fridays through the end of July.

All movies will be shown on a large inflatable screen at Veterans Park, which is located at 7305 Alabama 119 in southern Alabaster. The movies in the park program is organized by the Alabaster Parks and Recreation Department.

“The movies are free, so it makes for a fun, yet economical, evening of entertainment for family and friends,” read the Alabaster Parks and Recreation website. “All you’ll need to bring is a blanket or chair to sit on, and some snacks and drinks. The movies will begin showing around dusk (usually 8).”
