KYLE – The Parks and Recreation Department in Kyle (PARD) has announced its summer “Movies in the Park” series for 2008.
The series will consist of six movies on scattered Friday nights from May 2 to Sept. 5 at Gregg-Clark Park. All movies will begin 30 minutes after sunset.
Starting off the series, PARD presents “Underdog,” in which a bumbling watchdog named Shoeshine discovers he has superpowers after a lab accident. The movie is set for May 2, tentatively at 8:40 p.m.
On Friday, May 23, PARD will show “Evan Almighty,” the story of a preening newscaster who becomes a congressman before he’s called upon by God to build an ark. Tentative start time is 8:43 p.m.
“Bee Movie” will show on June 13 at approximately 9:04 p.m. Barry B. Benson is a bee who graduates from college and finds limited job opportunities in the hive (all they do is make honey). So, he ventures into the outside world, discovers that humans have stolen honey for years and decides to sue.
In “The Third,” Shrek needs to find a replacement for King Harold or he’ll be stuck with the throne. Shrek and his pals settle on a Medieval high school slacker named Artie, who proves to be a hilariously troubling prospect. The movie is scheduled for 9:03 p.m.
On Aug. 15, PARD will show “Transformers,” based on the popular 1980s cartoon. The Autobots and Decepticons wage war on Earth. The action features machines changing shapes between cars, trucks, planes and other technological marvels. Show time is set for 8:42 p.m.
