Enzian is taking the Popcorn Flick concept (free movies and popcorn under the stars) on the road and heading North. Wednesday evening the 23rd marks the inaugural “Cinema in the Park” selection at Centennial Park in Historic Downtown Sanford (incorporated 1877), with a different family-friendly film to be presented each month. Plans are for the initial line-up of films to be highlighted by those produced in the city itself, followed by other movies shot in Florida as the series continues.
Kicking things off at sunset is Howard Zieff’s comedic drama, MY GIRL (1991), starring Dan Aykroyd, Macaulay Culkin, Jamie Lee Curtis, Richard Masur, Griffin Dunne, and Anna Chlumsky in the title role. Shot in Sanford, the film tells the story of the 11-year-old daughter of a funeral director on her summer vacation. So get your blanket, picnic basket, and mosquito coil ready, and pray for no late afternoon thunderstorms.
