Friday Flicks Outdoor Movies 2014
| http://www.cityoflaurel.org/news/2014/05/13/friday-flicks-outdoor-movies-2014 |

Start your weekend off with a movie in the park! Laurel Department of Parks and Recreation will host four Friday Flicks Outdoor Movies at Granville Gude Park and Lakehouse starting at dusk (approximately 8:15pm).  Bring a blanket, picnic or relaxing chair and enjoy this free entertainment for the whole family.

Friday, July 25, 2014 - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (PG).  Picking up precisely where its hit predecessor left off, Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) has been invited to join the Live Corp Company and use his gift for invention for the good of mankind. Just as young Flint prepares to go to work for his hero Chester V (voice of Will Forte), the young genius learns that his water-to-food machine is not only still functional, but it's also started cross-breeding animals with food. Saving the world from these rampaging monstrosities won't be easy, but if anyone is up to the task, it's Flint and company.

Friday, August 1, 2014 - Smurfs 2 (PG).  Gargamel is back! Determined to harness the magical essence of the Smurfs, wicked wizard Gargamel creates a diminutive race of mischief makers known as the Naughties. Having recently shot to fame in Paris due to his impressive magical powers, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette, and sweeps her away to the City of Light. With Papa Smurf and company hot on his trail, however, the scheming wizard quickly realizes that executing his diabolical plan will be easier said than done.

Friday, August 8, 2014 - The Lego Movie (PG).  A lowly Lego figure (voiced by Chris Pratt) joins a group intent on battling an evil force after a case of mistaken identity in this computer-generated comedy. Will Arnett co-stars as the voice of Batman, who along with Superman, make appearances in the Warner Bros. picture.

Granville Gude Park and Lakehouse is located at 8300 Mulberry Street Laurel, MD, 20707.  Movies are subject to change prior to viewing date.  Children under 13 not permitted without a parent or guardian.  Visit the City’s web site at www.cityoflaurel.org or call 301-725-7800 for information.
