town news

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department will offer Family Movie Night at Joyner Park on Saturday, June 25, at 8:30 p.m.

Sponsored by Traditions at Wake Forest, Mosquito Joe of Eastern Wake County, and Primrose School of Heritage Wake Forest, the outdoor movie series features a variety of family-friendly film favorites and genres, including comedies, dramas, and thrillers, all projected on a 26-foot inflatable movie screen in the park’s amphitheater. The event also includes on-site food vendors selling snacks and refreshments.

Family Movie Night at Joyner Park is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and/or chairs but are reminded that alcohol, smoking, and unleashed pets are prohibited.

Due to the terms and conditions outlined in its agreement with the Motion Picture Licensing Corporation, the PRCR Department is not permitted to publicize the title of each month’s film. However, here’s a hint about the June 25 movie: it’s a 2015 computer-animated family comedy that served as a spin-off to the “Despicable Me” franchise.

To obtain the titles of the June 25 movie and future films offered as part of the Family Movie Night at Joyner Park series, sign up for The Week Ahead via E-Notifier at, download the town’s app, or call 919-556-7063.

Future film screenings are scheduled for July 30 and Aug. 13. Showtime for each event is 8:30 p.m. Anyone planning to attend is urged to arrive early as viewing space may be limited.

In the event of rain, Family Movie Night will be moved inside the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S.
