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 July 9, July 23 and August 6. 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 will be available for a nominal charge.
The 2022 summer movie lineup includes:
- July 9 – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
- July 23 – Encanto
- August 6 – Mary Poppins
“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.”Guests are encouraged to bring their ice chests, picnic baskets, blankets, and chairs to enjoy a picnic in the park. On-site catering from participating vendors will also be available for a nominal charge.
“It’s great to see so many people of all ages come out and enjoy these movies each and every year,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “This is another great family-friendly event for our community and I encourage everyone to come out to Heritage Park and join us for Slidell Movie Nights.”
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.
