2014 Movies in the Park

Our movies in the Parks are for Everyone to Enjoy – especially Families. As our events grow and more people attend we want to make sure that everyone continues to have a fun safe evening in Kannapolis while in our parks. We ask that all children/teens under the age of 18 be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. This helps us ensure that all children/teens are safe and acting appropraitely while attending our events. Children/teens not accompanied by a parent/legal guardian will be asked to leave the park and an adult will need to pick them up from the event. Also, pets and alcohol are not allowed at the movie events.
