Roosevelt Park to Host Movie & Concert

Roosevelt Park to Host Movie & Concert
Roosevelt Park, located at E. Saucon & S. Filmore streets in Allentown, will be the site of two city-sponsored events this coming weekend. 

On Friday, July 8, the city Department of Parks and Recreation will present the fourth installment of the 2016 Movies in the Park series with “Hotel Transylvania 2,” starring Adam Sandler, Andy Sandberg, and Selena Gomez. The movie will begin at dusk (approximately 8:45pm). 

“Now that Dracula has opened the Hotel Transylvania's doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn't showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a "monster-in-training" boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac's cantankerous, old-school Dad pays an unexpected visit.”

The movie is rated PG and will run for roughly 100 minutes. The rain date is Saturday, July 9. 

The Allentown Public Library will be on site to offer a storytelling session from 7:30pm – 8:30pm. 

Paint & Party Studios will also be at the park from 7pm – 8pm to help participants create an art project. Reservations are required, and there is a $5.00 fee per person. Interested persons should contact Paint & Party Studios at 610-351-3532 to make reservations.
