Family movie night coming up Friday



GRAND BLANC TWP. — The Grand Blanc Parks and Recreation Department will host a family movie night event Friday, June 11, at Bicentennial Park.

The film “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” will begin at 9:30 p.m. on Field 6 — just look for the huge, inflatable screen. The movie is free.

“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is rated PG-13 and stars Jack Black, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Nick Jonas. The third installment in the “Jumanji” franchise (“Jumanji,” “Zathura: A Space Adventure”), the movie picks up the comedy-adventure-fantasy take 20 years after characters Alan Parrish and Sarah Whittle discarded the magical game at the close of the 1995 original movie.

The journey unfolds as four teenagers are whisked into a video version of the game as their adult avatars, and must work together to get out.

The movie is free and open to all. Movie-goers should bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating, and may bring food and beverages (no alcohol). The concession stand will be open for popcorn, pop and candy.

There will not be a movie shown in July. The next movie night will take place in August. The title is as yet to be determined.
