Cinema by the Shore
Cinema by the Shore kicks off in less than a month. Gulfport wants you to start getting your blankets and picnic baskets ready.
The third Friday of every month from April 22nd to August 19th, Jones Park will welcome kids, families and residents across the Coast to lay on the lawns for free movies. This year, the kick off happens to land on Earth Day so different organizations, such as DMR and Wild at Heart Rescue, will be joining for pre-movie activities.
City officials tell News 25 the family fun event is the perfect opportunity to let kids enjoy the outdoors. Chris Vignes with the City of Gulfport said, “Make an evening of it, you know, kids can come out here and be kids. It’s a great playground. We like to joke that Jones Park is the front yard of Mississippi and so it really, truly is. They’ll have a night to come out and do these activities with their families and friends.”
Opening night will feature the movie “Good Dinosaur” in support of Earth Day. The free movies will be held at the Jones Park center canopy and food from a number of sponsors will be available.
