Summer Movie on the Square Series Kicks Off with Moana
Join us in Downtown Carrollton (1106 S. Broadway Street) as the summer Movie on the Square series begins this June. The free summertime events are held the second Saturday of the month and promise a family-fun evening in historic Downtown. Kicking off the summer series lineup is Disney’s Academy Award®–winning Moana (2016), PG, on June 10.
Families will marvel at the epic adventure about a spirited teen who sets sail on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana meets the once mighty demigod Maui, and together they cross the ocean on a fun-filled, action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds, and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Kids will want to keep an eye out for a special visit from Moana herself from 7 to 9 p.m.
The series continues on Saturday, July 8 with Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), PG-13. When brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe, he is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora, and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
Beauty and the Beast (1991), PG, will serve as the last movie in the summer series in Downtown on Saturday, August 12. Be our guest and experience the magic of this timeless tale, overflowing with unforgettable characters. Experience the fantastic journey of Belle, a brave and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff, and learns to look beyond her captor’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart of the true prince within. Belle and the Beast will be special Carrollton guests from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The movies begin at sunset. Don’t forget lawn chairs and blankets for seating. To see all upcoming Downtown events, visit cityofcarrollton.com/downtown.
