It's time once again to have family night at the park!  The Spring 2017 Movies Under the Stars Series is about to get underway and the films are going to better than ever! Brought to you the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, local and free activities like this is a great way to get together with family and friends.  Plus a wonderful way to experience the great parks in Lake Charles.

Speaking of which, Movies Under the Stars will take place every Friday in April (weather permitting.)  Save the dates!  Friday, April 7 through Friday, April 28, 2017 the movies will begin at dusk or 7 p.m. at Prien Lake Park, located at 3700 West Prien Lake Road in Lake Charles.

Admission is absolutely free and you can either purchase popcorn, snacks, candy and refreshments at the park from Mr. Gatti’s Pizza and Tikiz Gulf Coast, or bring your own.  Residents are encouraged to bring blankets, wagons and lawn chairs as well.

Below is a look at the movie schedule this spring!

April 14 – Sing

A hustling theater owner makes a last ditch effort to pay off his mountain of dept and save his beloved theater, by launching a singing completion. The outcome transforms the lives of his finalists and his own.

April 21 – Finding Dory

One of Disney’s beloved movies and characters are back.  This time to help their friend Dory find her family.  It isn't easy either, as she can't remember anything.  Her short term memory loss may slow her down, but it doesn't stop her from being reunited with her parents.

April 28  – The Secret Lives of Pets

Ever wonder what your pets do when you leave them for a day?  After watching this movie, you may never look at your animals the same again.  Watch as Max and his new roommate Duke get in a ton of trouble in this adorable movie about pets.

This Spring Movies Under The Stars belongs to the animals!  Don't miss all the fun.  In case of inclement weather, the event will be canceled.
