Movies in the Park 2012

Nashville has at least two long-standing outdoor movie series, and one is undergoing a big change this year.

Movies in the Park, which takes place every Wednesday in June, is moving from Centennial Park, where it’s been for 16 years, to Warner Park’s Cross Country Field on Hwy 100. Why the change? I’m not sure, but something tells me it’ll at the very least be a little safer, if not roomier. Maybe more parking.

But let’s move past that. The important part of Movies in the Park is the movies they show. Here’s the full list:

  • June 6th – The Help
  • June 13th – Shrek (not Schrek, oh well)
  • June 20th – Twilight: Breaking Dawn
  • June 27th – Captain America – an edited version

As usual, something for everyone. Right on.

Movies start at dusk, but be sure to get there early for a good spot. Apparently the party starts at 4pm and Moe’s Southwestern Grill, Ben & Jerry’s, Stonehouse Q, Kona Ice, the Grilled Cheeserie and Moose Head kettle corn.
