Movies in the Park: The Help
June 6, 2012
After 16 years in Centennial Park, the Nashville Scene and the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation are moving the annual summer event Movies in the Park to Percy Warner Park. This event kicks off at sunset every Wednesday night from June 6 - 27.
Tonight's Feature: The Help
The new location — at Percy Warner Park’s cross country fields (before you get to the Nature Center) — is located on Highway 100 and is a short drive from downtown. Warner Park offers hiking trails, scenic views, golf courses, equestrian trails, running courses and picnic areas. “There is a great opportunity for movie-goers to arrive early and picnic and hike before the movie begins,” explains Mike Smith, Publisher of the Nashville Scene.
Food vendors will also be at the park again this year to provide guests with a snack, dinner or dessert. This year’s providers include: Moe’s Southwestern Grill, Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Stonehouse Q, Kona Ice, the Grilled Cheesserie gourmet food truck and Moose Head kettle corn.
Guests are encouraged to pick a spot on the grass, enjoy the food and relax as the movie plays. Nashville Scene readers have voted Movies in the Park “Best Free Fun” for the past seven years.
