5 things to know: Greenwood Public Library Starlight movie

You and your family can catch a movie under the stars at an upcoming event planned by the Greenwood Public Library.

The library’s annual Starlight Movie night is later this month.

Emily Ellis, assistant director at the library, tells you what you need to know.

When and where is the movie?

7:30 p.m. June 30 at Old City Park, just across the parking lot from the library. We are showing “Lego Batman.”

How much is it?

The event is free. We do offer popcorn for $1, but families are welcome to bring their own snacks.

Why did you plan this event?

This is our seventh summer hosting outdoor movie events. We like planning events that the entire family can enjoy together. Our outdoor movies offer an opportunities for all ages to kick back and enjoy summer in a fun atmosphere. There’s nothing quite like hearing kids and parents really get into the movies, laughing together the whole evening.

How many people are you expecting?

We are expecting anywhere from 300 to 500 attendees. That’s our usual count depending on weather and other local activities on the same evening.

What other activities are planned?

Along with the movie, we’ll be hosting a craft table, kids games and handing out raffle prizes right before the movie starts. Attendees who are signed up for our summer reading program, “Reading Revolution!” will also receive a secret code to put into Mission Control to prove that they attended. Mission Control is a new addition to our summer programming, encouraging families to take advantage of all of our free activities and become acquainted with the different services the library offers year round.
