Animated features dominate this year’s offerings

The Town of Truro Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture is once again screening outdoor movies at Victoria Park this summer. Mid-Summer Movie Nights will be held on four consecutive Fridays beginning July 18.

Movies are free of charge and begin at dusk (approximately 9 p.m.) at the bandshell.

Cathy von Kintzel, special events and culture coordinator for Truro Parks, Recreation and Culture, says hundreds of people routinely attend the weekly features. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own chairs and snacks to enjoy the shows.

In the case of poor weather, movies will be shown at Douglas Street Recreation Centre, 40 Douglas St.

Here’s the 2014 movie lineup:

July 18 — The Lego Movie (2014) G
