Starting this month, three Southside agencies with strong, neighborhood-based programs will implement the first ever “Southside Movie Series”. Over a period of three months, family-friendly movies will be shown at different Southside locations in an effort to provide engaging winter activities for the community. Planning partners hope to use this opportunity to celebrate, encourage, and support connections between residents across Southside neighborhoods. The event is free and open to the public.
The first movie, Monsters Inc., will start at 6 p.m. on Friday, January 12, at Journey House, 2110. W. Scott St. The movie will be shown in the gym and those that attend are encouraged to bring blankets and pillows to sit on. Light snacks will be available for purchase, and proceeds will go towards future community events. Presenting partners at this location include Clarke Square Neighborhood Initiative, Journey House, and Longfellow Elementary.
