Grab your lawn chairs and picnic blankets and head on out to Heritage Park this summer when the City of Slidell presents Slidell Movie Nights on select Saturday evenings this summer on May 29, June 12, June 26, July 10 and July 24. The movies will begin at sunset, at roughly 8:30 p.m. Admission is free.

People are invited to bring their ice chests (and bug spray!) to the park to enjoy the free movies. Bring your appetites too, because concessions from Olde Towne Slidell Main Street and Old School Eats Food Truck will also be available for a nominal charge.

The 2021 summer movie lineup includes:

May 29 – Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
June 12 – The Lion King (2019)
June 26 – The Sandlot
July 10 – Yesterday
July 24 – Ghostbusters

“We do try to pick movies that both adults and children will enjoy and that are appropriate for families to watch together,” said Alex Carollo, Director of the city’s Department of Cultural & Public Affairs.” If you want to know if a certain movie is suitable for your children, you can visit websites such as Kids-in-Mind and Common Sense Media for more information about objectionable content in each movie.”

Slidell Movie Nights began as a Leadership Northshore 2014 class project and the City of Slidell continues this popular outdoor event for families to continue to enjoy each summer.
