POINT PLEASANT — In the midst of historic Tu-Endie-Wei Park, the Point Pleasant Parks and Rec Committee will be hosting a free movie night for families on June 24. Movie at the Point will be the first time for something like this, and the future of it will be determined by public participation and general success of the event.
This first showing will begin about 8 p.m. on June 24, which is a Saturday, just as dusk is settling. Light concessions will be provided, including some snacks and popcorn – typical movie food drink. The cost for the movie is free, and attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and lawn chair.
The film on display this time will be the animated movie “Trolls.” This particular instance of movie night is intended for families and those with young children. According to Point Pleasant City Councilman Gabe Roush, if this continues through the summer, different films would be chosen to suit date night or other various audiences.
“The Parks and Rec Department is trying to find more ways to get the community more involved,” said Roush. “This idea has been successful in other communities and we want to try that here.”
There is a Facebook event for the evening, which can be found by searching “Movie at the Point.”
