The City of Alton will be showcasing movies on a 30 foot inflatable screen beginning this Friday, August 5, with Zootopia being the first movie shown.
The screen and sound system was purchased to offer additional entertainment for residents and visitors to spend an evening in the City.
"The Amphitheater is a wonderful venue to host an outdoor movie," Mayor Brant Walker said.
Because of its 4,000 seat capacity and the location being on the riverfront, which has an amazing view, it's a great venue for people to gather for outdoor movies and other events. Future movie dates are: Friday, September 23 and Friday, October 21.
Please go to the Park and Recreation's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/altonparksandrecreation to participate in the selection of the next movie. Movies are free of charge and parking is available at Riverfront Park and downtown Alton. Blankets and lawn chairs are recommended and concessions will be available for purchase.
Movie Night is presented in part by Amphitheater sponsors; Liberty Bank, Simmons, Hanley, Conroy, Ameren Illinois, Argosy, Clark Properties, CNB Bank, Fritz distributing and Bank of Edwardsville.
