Dolphin Tale- Movie in the Park

Have a splashing good time at Point Mallard Park on Saturday, August 11, 2012 and enjoy the movie Dolphin Tale.   (PG, 113 minutes)  The movie stars Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick, Jr., Ashley Judd and Kris Kristofferson in a story based on true events.  Winter is a young dolphin who loses her tail in a crab trap but is befriended by Sawyer, an introverted 11 year old who meets the dolphin at a marine rehabilitation center.  Sawyer rallies friends and family to save the dolphin by convincing a pioneering doctor to build a prosthetic tale that restores the dolphin’s ability to swim. The movie will be shown on at the Spirit of America Stage. 

All movies begin “at dark” and guests should bring blankets, lawn chairs and snacks.  The free “Movie in the Park” series is sponsored by the City of Decatur Parks and Recreation Department.  Efforts are made to select family-friendly or classic movies for audience viewing, however, parents are encouraged to review movies in advance for appropriateness to age, content and interests.  Please leave pets at home as they are not permitted on the soccer field.

Additional information on the movie can be obtained by contacting 256-341-4818 or visiting http://www.decaturparks.com/account.php?accountid=71.  In case of inclement weather, cancellation information will be posted on the DPR website and on the DPR  and Decatur, Alabama Facebook pages.
