On Friday, March 26, the City of Prattville will present a free showing ofPlanet 51
on a 30-foot inflatable movie screen at Cooters Pond Park for the entire family to enjoy.
The film is an animated adventure comedy and features the voices of Dwayne Johnson, Jessica Biel, Justin Long, Gary Oldman, and John Cleese.
Captain Charles Chuck Baker (Johnson) lands on Planet 51 and to his surprise finds that it is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world, and whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders like Chuck! Baker must rely on his robot companion, Rover, and his new friend Lem in order to find a way back home before it's too late.
So, bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets and prepare to blast off into space! The movie begins at dark and Ria's Pizzaria will be onsite selling $5 large pizzas. No alcoholic beverages are allowed.
This is the second year that movie under the stars will be held at Cooters Pond Park.
We have had great success with our free movie series in that location, said City of Prattville Special Events Director Kellie Cook. It is a great, open area and the grounds make a natural theatre seating effect.
