Free outdoor movie in Lamoureux Park Saturday, July 19

CORNWALL, Ontario – Residents are invited to enjoy a free movie under the stars on Saturday, July 19th at the Lions Club Bandshell in Lamoureux Park as part of the City of Cornwall’s Arts in the Park series.

This free event – sponsored by Rachel’s Kids – will feature the presentation of the animated hit movie Rio 2 on a 25-foot inflatable screen.

The show will start as soon as it is dark enough (approximately 8:45 p.m., weather permitting) and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so an early arrival is recommended.

“The outdoor movie night has become a popular part of our Arts in the Park series,” said Lorne Taillon, Leisure Arts Coordinator. “It’s a great way for families to spend some quality time together during the summer holidays.”

Rio 2 is a 2014 3D computer-animated musical adventure-comedy film and it is rated G. The movie follows Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they’re hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.

In addition to the movie, a free Zumba kids workshop will be held at 7:30 p.m. to raise awareness of the benefits of healthy and active living.

Food vendors will be on site selling food and drinks, and the Civic Complex washrooms will remain open for the duration of the movie.

Organizers are reminding movie-goers to dress for the weather and come prepared with a lawn chair or blanket, a flashlight and bug spray.
