It’s Family Movie Night this evening at the Middletown Community Park with Disney’s Coco being played on the big screen for all to see, rain or shine.

Admission and popcorn are free, though proceeds from the sale of hot dogs, skittles, and water will go towards helping locals in need. A 50/50 raffle will also help raise funds.

Middletown Parks and Rec Director Paul Kopera says “Rise From the Ashes” will help a local family who lost everything.

“The inspiration for tonight’s movie is brinign the community together,” Kopera said. “A family in Laurel Oaks suffered a devastating house fire. They’ve been relocated and, as a member of the community, we wanted to see what we could contribute for the family to help their transition before their house is rebuilt.”

The other program is “Kicks for Kids” and will use its proceeds to further its mission of providing new school shoes for disadvantaged children in Middletown Township.

Summer counselors will organize plenty of games for the kids including corn hole, soccer, and basketball. The park also features a huge playground for running around.

The event is sponsored by Diane Loomis, Owner and Partner at Keller Williams Real Estate, and her agency.

Movie goers should bring blankets and lawn chairs for Coco festivities tonight beginning at 7 p.m. The games and music will wind down at 8:15 when the movie begins.

Despite a slight chance of rain this evening, there is a greater chance of precipitation on the rain date, so the event will go on as scheduled.
