Placentia movie series set for finale

August 19, 2013 by  

The popular Movies in the Park 2013 series, which is presented by the City of Placentia and Placentia Disposal, is set to mark the end of summer with one last presentation on Friday.

For the seventh and final showing of the year, Placentia Champions Sports Park is offering The Weinstein Company’s Escape from Planet Earth. Rated PG, the film is a 3D animated sci-fi tale about a planet-hopping astronaut’s increasingly dangerous set of adventures. It features a star-studded vocal cast comprising Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, and William Shatner.

Placentia Champions Sports Complex will be open all day prior to the showing. The area’s residents are sure to enjoy the 13 acres of recreational space that the park has to offer, with activities on offer for the whole family.

The Complex’s usual set of concessions stands will be joined by non-profit vendors in the evening to provide refreshments and low-cost dining options. All visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets and other picnic gear.

Local businesses have this final opportunity to show support for Placentia and its community members. Flyer printing and business card printing will help bring attention to the event and the groups supporting it.

Escape from Planet Earth will begin promptly at dusk on Friday but guests are advised to arrive on the grounds early to ensure they are able to reserve a spot. Admission and parking are both free to guests of all ages. The Community Services Department can be contacted at 714 993 8232 for more information.
