Annual Movies in the Park Series Continues on June 14th

The Temple Parks Foundation will continue the free Movies in the Park series this Saturday, June 14th at Miller Park (1919 N. 1st Street) featuring the classic film, The Princess Bride, sponsored by McLane Children’s at Baylor Scott & White in Temple.

“We are proud to be showing this great movie at Miller Park, one the Temple’s best parks. McLane Children’s will have a lot of entertaining activities before the movie begins so we look forward to seeing families from across the community join us for this fun & free event,” said Temple Parks Foundation Member, Travis Smith. “Supporting a family event such as Movies in the Park is a way for McLane Children’s to give back to our wonderful community. A community that has embraced and supported our mission to provide excellent pediatric health care in Central Texas. We hope for a great turn out to enjoy this outstanding event.” Pre-movie activities begin at 6:30 p.m. with the movie starting at sunset. Movies in the Park is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets and snacks. Concessions will be available for purchase.

Saturday’s film, The Princess Bride tells the story of a kindly grandfather reading a fairytale to his young grandson. As the grandfather continues reading, the story comes alive. With swordplay, giants, an evil prince and a beautiful princess, The Princess Bride is a classic tale of love and adventure. When the beautiful Princess Buttercup is kidnapped and held against her will by Prince Humperdinck, it is up to her childhood friend Westley to save her. The film stars a young Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin and Andre the Giant and is rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America.

The movie will be projected on a 30 x 17 foot high definition screen featuring a sound system that rivals any indoor movie theater experience. The screen and presentation of the movie are provided by Grand Avenue Theater in Belton.

“We hope everybody can come out this Saturday and enjoy a relaxing and entertaining evening in the park courtesy of the Temple Parks Foundation and McLane Children’s at Baylor Scott & White,” said Holly Leiferman, Special Events Coordinator. “We also want to remind everybody that this week’s film will be shown in Miller Park.”

The final movie shown during the series will be Despicable Me 2 on July 5 at Lions Park (4320 Lions Park Rd.) sponsored by H-E-B.
