Johns Creek closes its free Movies at Newtown Park outdoor summer film series on Aug. 9 with the showing of the popular animated film "The LEGO Movie."
In this PG-rated adventure, Emmet, an ordinary LEGO construction worker, is thought to be the "Special" and joins a quest to stop an evil tyrant from permanently gluing the LEGO universe, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously unprepared.
Movies at Newtown Park, now in its eighth year, is a series of three family-friendly films shown monthly on an inflatable screen in a picnic atmosphere at Newtown Park.
In addition to the films, Movies at Newtown Park includes pre-show entertainment like inflatable moonwalk, face-painting, children's activities, giveaways, music, food and drinks. Pre-show activities start at 7 p.m., and the movie starts around 9 p.m.
The movies start at dusk. Families are encouraged to bring blankets and relax as they watch the movie. No alcohol or pets please. The movies are free.
Movies are rated G or PG. The 2014 Movies at Newtown Park series is sponsored by Northside Hospital.
Newtown Park is located at 3150 Old Alabama Rd.
