Free movies in downtown Milton begin this weekend

Published on July 11, 2016 with No Comments

The City of Milton presents Big Screen on the Blackwater – a three week series of free summer movies in Milton.

Just like Milton’s Bands on the Blackwater series, bring a lawn chair or blanket and watch a movie the nights of July 15, July 22, and July 29.

City of Milton Marketing Director Pamela Holt said the city decided to include free movies during the break during July and August to continue having free entertainment downtown.

“The city wants to encourage both citizens and visitors to enjoy downtown and Blackwater River throughout the year,” said Holt.

“We are going to have a giant 25-foot screen downtown,” said Kyle Kemp, the City of Milton Parks and Recreation events coordinator. “You can watch the movie from the comfort of your lawn chair or blanket and enjoy these free outdoor summer shows.”

The free movies will start at 7:30 p.m. in downtown Milton. Each night you can bring your own refreshments or take advantage of available concessions.

All three movies are rated PG or PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America. Two of the movies carry the old rating of PG; suggested rating for today’s criteria places Ghostbusters and Jaws in the PG13 category.
