Each week, the movies will start at 6:30 p.m. Laura Heller with the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury said,

Be sure to get there early to get the best spots. Residents are encouraged to bring their own blankets, lawn chairs, and food. Free popcorn and cotton candy will be served at each event.

Movie-goers are also invited to wear family-friendly Halloween costumes to each movie.

Movies will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. Cancellations will be announced before the event on the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury’s website at and on CPPJ’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

So make plans to go one Friday or all Fridays. Here is a great event to take the entire family to and enjoy a night out.
