Movies in the Park - Saturday, May 22nd

Movie: The Princess Bride
Date: Saturday, May 22, 2021
Time: Sunset (approximately 9:00 pm)
Location: James F. Atchison Memorial Park

The Lyon Township Parks and Recreation Advisory Board would like to extend an invitation to our FREE Movies in the Park event! We will be showing The Princess Bride (PG, 1987, Live Action) on Saturday, May 22nd. This cult classic fantasy-adventure-comedy was selected in a recent resident survey where over a third of respondents listed it as their first choice. 

The event will be held at Lyon Township's James F. Atchison Memorial Park behind and to the west of the township hall. Both drive-in viewing and a distanced grass seating area will be offered. The movie will start at sunset (around 9pm), but please arrive early to avoid headlights on the screen once we begin and as space is limited.

Lyon Township residents expressed an interest in resuming Movies in the Park programming, and the Lyon Township Board of Trustees agreed to fund this event as a pilot program to assess community interest and participation. Based on the level of attendance, additional movies may be presented in the future.
