They are doing a new thing this year!
The Weirton Board of Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with the city and the Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be offering a new Movies in the Park program throughout the summer.
Movies in the Park will provide movies for viewing by the public, free of charge, at selected parks and other sites in the city.
“This is another great example of the kind of teamwork we’ve come to expect in the city of Weirton,”parks Executive Director Coty Shingle said. “This is a project we’ve considered many times over the years but never really had the funding.”
They had their first movie showing of Super 8 on Tuesday.
Around 80 people showed up for the movie!
Along with the ‘Monday Night Movies’ they are also doing ‘Friday Night Flicks’.
The ‘Friday Night Flicks’ will be at three different locations around Weirton.
On June 28th the movie will be at Starvaggi Pool, August 9th following the 5K at Marland Heights Park, and the last one will be at Edwin J. Bowman Field but that date has not been decided yet.
City officials say it was a great start to summer season and this new event.
