Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park begin Saturday with “Aladdin”

Tuesday, July 20, 2021 - 1:54pm

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will host the first “Family Movie Night” of the season this Saturday, July 24. The featured film, “Aladdin,” will be projected on a 26-foot inflatable movie screen in the E. Carroll Joyner Park Amphitheater, 701 Harris Road. Showtime is 8:30 p.m., but anyone planning to attend is urged to arrive early as viewing space may be limited.

The second and final “Family Movie Night” of 2021 is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 7. The featured film will be “Black Panther.”

Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park are free and open to the public. No food vendors will be on site this year selling snacks and refreshments, so attendees are especially encouraged to pack and bring a picnic basket and cooler. Blankets and/or chairs are also permitted, but alcohol, smoking and unleashed pets are prohibited.

In the event of rain, Family Movie Night may be moved inside Joyner Park Community Center, 701 Harris Road. Updates will be posted on the Town website, Nextdoor site and Facebook page. Smart phone users who have downloaded the Town of Wake Forest app will also receive a push notification message concerning any schedule changes.
