The city’s spring “Movies in the Park” series will bring the animated feature “Hotel Transylvania” to Wisner Park tonight (Friday, March 22), with games and activities starting at 5:30 p.m. and projection of the movie on to the big screen beginning at dusk. Concession sales will benefit the Xavier Prep Foundation and recreation activities at the park.
For more information about the program, see the announcement from the city below:
This week, the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC) will continue the Movies in the Park program.
Throughout the spring, residents will have the opportunity to watch family movies for free on a large portable outdoor movie screen in grassy areas across the city. Movies will begin around dusk, weather permitting. If the movie is cancelled due to weather, NORDC will schedule a make-up date.
NORDC will provide a large portable outdoor movie screen, licensed DVD, security, trash receptacles and satellite restrooms. Community organizations and neighborhood associations will serve as the host by choosing a movie from NORDC’s inventory as well as providing space, concessions, a volunteer cleanup crew, and a table showcasing upcoming neighborhood events.
Movies in the Park is free and open to the public. However, participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and no pets, alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, firearms, weapons, smoking, or cooking is allowed during the event.
