The Phoenixville Jaycees will be hosting a free showing of “Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit” in Reeves Park on Friday, October 12, with the movie starting at 7 p.m.
Attendants are encouraged to bring their own blankets and seats, if desired, and can feel free to bring their own refreshments. The Jaycees will also be selling some refreshments during the movie.
“A lot of other towns do something similar and we thought it would be nice to put on a free event for the community at Reeves Park to let people know that we do more than just the Dogwood Festival,” said Jill Dilworth, the chairperson of the event. “We also think it’s a nice way to say thank you to Phoenixville and celebrate the season.”
“Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were-Rabbit” (2005, rated G) is a fun-filled movie for all ages that tells the story of the Wallace and his pet pooch Gromit’s humane pest control company “Anti- Pesto,” which helps protect neighbourhood gardens, and its attempt to protect the town’s vegetable plots from the sudden emergence of an enormous beast prior to its annual Giant Vegetable competition.
Funflicks Outdoor Movies USA will be providing a 16’ x 20’ foot inflatable screen that will be set up in front of the bandshell in Reeves Park for the viewing.
