The city of Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation’s Movies in the Park series continues Saturday, July 23 at West Park with a Picnic & a Movie screening of “The Intern.”
This PG-13 rated movie starring Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway features 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (DeNiro) who has discovered that retirement is unfulfilling. Capitalizing on a chance to get back into the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin (Hathaway).
The approximately 120 minute show will begin at dusk (approximately 8:45pm).
The movie will be preceded by an installment of the Parks and Recreation Department Summer Concert Series at West Park featuring the Municipal Band performing at 6:30pm.
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 per person fee. Interested persons should contact Paint & Party Studios at 610-351-3532 to make reservations.
