As the back-to-school countdown begins, the Cobb Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs is hosting “Mooovies at the Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre” as a free, family-friendly way to milk what’s left of summer.
The event is a free movies series, which begin at dusk. Gates open at 7:30 p.m.
The first featured movie, “The Muppets,” will be shown on Thursday.
“The Lorax” will be the feature film Thursday, Aug. 2, and is an adaptation of the classic Dr. Seuss tale beginning with a 12-year-old boy yearning for the affection of the girl of his dreams. “Hairspray” is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 9, and is about the pleasantly-plump teenage Tracy Turnblad teaching 1962 Baltimore about integration after landing a spot on a local TV dance show.
