Midwest City is bringing something new to its summertime line-up of family fun! Beginning June 3 through August 12, the Charles J. Johnson Central Park in Town Center will be transformed into an outdoor cinema entitled Midwest Regional Medical Center presents Sunset Cinema.
According to Vaughn Sullivan, Community Services Director, the City has recently purchased a 16’ wide x 9’ tall movie screen that is fully equipped with a high quality sound system to provide a theatre like atmosphere in a fun, outdoor setting, weather permitting, of course.
“Many communities across the country are providing this entertainment activity with great success. We are very excited to bring another quality family activity to our community,” Sullivan said.
Held on Sunday evenings, the movies are scheduled to begin about twenty minutes after the sun goes down, according to officials. Families are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs, blankets and picnic baskets for an evening of great free entertainment.
The line-up of movies includes “Grease”, “The Muppets” and “Despicable Me”, to name a few. For a complete listing of the movie offerings, please go to www.midwestcityok.org and click on the Special Events section on the home page.
The Charles J. Johnson Central Park in Town Center is located at SE 29th St. and Mid-America Blvd.
