Special to Atmore News
United Bank sets out to explore “The Hidden World” for its Screen on the Green 2019 outdoor movie. The event will be held Friday, August 2, at Heritage Park where the main feature will be “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” the third entry into the popular movie series. Follow Hiccup and Toothless again as they explore “The Hidden World,” a secret Dragon Utopia.
Pride of Atmore members will be on site beginning at 6 p.m., selling sausage dog plates for $6 which will include chips and a drink. The proceeds from dinner sales will benefit the Pride of Atmore Downtown Revitalization’s renovation of the historical Strand Theater on Main Street along with the adjacent hardware store. Kona Ice of Pensacola North will also be onsite and available for purchase, and 20 percent of their earnings will benefit the renovation as well.
There is no charge to attend the movie, which will begin at dusk (approximately 8 p.m.). Additionally, there will be complimentary water and popcorn provided during the show.
“Being a part of our community is important,” said Bob Jones, President and CEO of United Bank. “Frequently, citizens share with me their memories of attendance from previous movie nights and how it has become a tradition among our youth. This event is focused on families and meant to be a relaxing evening to celebrate the end of the summer and kick off the new school year.”
Moviegoers are encouraged to bring bug spray, blankets or chairs and arrive early. The Pride of Atmore will begin serving at 6 p.m. Cash payments will be accepted. The Atmore Community Splash Pad will be open until 10 p.m.
