Greer, South Carolina: Outdoor Movies to be Shown on an Inflatable Screen in Greer, South Carolina
. The time to spread picnic blankets over the soft spring grass at Greer City Park will soon be near with two new programs that will entertain visitors of all ages. Greer citizens will be able to enjoy outdoor movies on an inflatable screen this summer, and live acoustic music will be presented every Wednesday afternoon. "Lunchtime Live!" features free live acoustic performances from local artists 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. every Wednesday for ten weeks starting April 22. Box lunches from Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce restaurants will be available for purchase, or folks can bring their own picnic lunch, said Laurie Campbell and Karl Rogozenski, event coordinators. They're hoping the concert series will attract business people and families -- anyone who wants to enjoy lunch in a relaxed outdoor environment. For those looking to enjoy a drive-in movie experience, the "Moonlight Movies" series May 7 to August 20 will offer outdoor films on a giant 20-foot inflatable screen in the middle of the City Park amphitheater. The Moonlight Movies series debuts on May 7 with the first of four classics, Raiders of the Lost Ark. The events staff has planned such themes as Western Night, Date Night, and Musical Night, before eight consecutive weeks of family films such as E.T. and The Wizard of Oz dominate the summer months. Additional classics such as Casablanca and To Kill a Mockingbird will close the series.
