'To Kill a Mockingbird' Tonight at Fogerty Park
University City's September movie in the park will screen at dusk tonight.
University City’s 2012 Movies in the Parks series continues tonight in Fogerty Park with a screening of the classic film To Kill a Mockingbird.
“Once the steering committee realized that 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of the film adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird, we knew we wanted to feature that classic and brainstormed additional coming of age films to round out the schedule,” said film committee chair Wilmetta Toliver-Diallo. “One of our priorities was to select films that appealed to a broad audience and offer local youth, primarily tweens and teens, with safe alternative entertainment and cultural programming that’s constructive and a more positive way to spend time than hanging out.”
The free series will conclude next month with a viewers’ choice showing of either Super 8, Goonies or Stand by Me.
Residents’ votes were collected online and at every preceding Movies in the Parks event. To view the complete schedule, as well as a link to the viewers’ choice poll for the series finale, click here.
The movie will begin shortly after sundown.
