Those of you who were excited to kick off the summer with Movies in the Park at Ah Nab Awen Park this Friday are going to be sadly disappointed.

Wednesday afternoon, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. announced that the opening night of Movies in the Park has been pushed back to Friday, June 16.

The decision was made to allow additional time for new sod recently installed in Ah-Nab-Awen Park to fully take root.

Don't worry, though, Zootopia and Star Trek will now play on Friday, July 28.


Movies in the Park will now kick off June 16 with Willy Wonka & Pan's Labyrinth in Ah-Nab-Awen Park.
