Back to School Family Movie Night

The City of Acworth along the Acworth Business Association will be holding a FREE “Back to School Family Movie Night” on Friday, August 1.  Come out to the football fields at the Acworth Sports Complex after a long week and watch Rio 2.  These fun characters are back!  It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they’re hurtled from that magical city of Rio to the wilds of the Amazon.  As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all…his father-in-law!

The gates will open at 7:00 p.m. and the movie will begin at dark.  So bring out your lawn chairs, a blanket and cooler…a great night is guaranteed!  Concessions will be available.
