The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department is hosting a free, monthly outdoor movie series through August at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road. The second in the series of Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park will feature the film “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” this Saturday, June 22, at 8:30 p.m.

Each Family Movie Night also includes a movie-related pre-show activity for kids. The theme for Saturday’s pre-show activity will be “Game On!” Beginning at 6 p.m., children 12 and under are invited to get their “game on” in a mobile video game truck offering the latest game titles and video consoles. Giant versions of Jenga, Bean Bag Toss and Connect 4 will also be provided. Please note the early start time for the pre-show activity which typically begins at 7:15 p.m.

Presented by Walters Insurance Agency, Inc. and Mosquito Joe of Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, Family Movie Nights at Joyner Park will feature a variety of family-friendly film favorites and genres, including comedies, dramas and thrillers, all projected on a 26-foot inflatable movie screen in the park’s amphitheater.

Future film screenings are scheduled for July 27 (Mulan) and Aug. 10 (Bumblebee). Showtime for each event is 8:30 p.m. Anyone planning to attend is urged to arrive early as viewing space may be limited.

Family Movie Nights are free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or chairs but are reminded that alcohol, smoking and unleashed pets are prohibited.
