COVINGTON, Ky. - The outdoors movie season kicks off Friday night with an animated musical featuring a dapper koala trying to save his theater.
 
The free showing of Illumination Entertainment’s “Sing” is one of three family-oriented movies hosted this summer by Covington Parks & Recreation.
 
“We’re all about providing opportunities for folks in our community to come together and do something fun,” Program Coordinator Jess Link said. “Our outdoor movie series is how we provide a magical summer blockbuster experience at no cost for our neighbors.”
 
Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs and popcorn (or other snacks).
 
The schedule:
  • “Sing” - 9 p.m., Friday (June 21), Devou Park Band Shell. Info, HERE.
  • “Coco” - 9 p.m., Friday, July 19, Randolph Park. Info, HERE.

Cinema in the Cemetery
Another long tradition, Cinema in the Cemetery (in the Historic Linden Grove Cemetery & Arboretum) is also scheduled to return this year.
 
The City plans to partner with three groups - Friends of Peaselburg, the cemetery, and The Center for Great Neighborhoods - to continue the popular movie series.
 
Although details aren’t finalized for this year, Cinema in the Cemetery founder Lisa Jarboe said movie-goers should expect at least one family-friendly movie date later this fall.
 
Last year, hundreds of people came to see “The Never Ending Story,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” and “The Mighty Ducks” on the big screen projector in Linden Grove.
