Lawrenceville Kicks Off Outdoor Movie Series with Jurassic World
Free Family-Friendly Movies on the Lawrenceville Lawn

LAWRENCEVILLE (METRO ATLANTA) GA – April 6, 2016

The City of Lawrenceville is gearing up for the first of a five part series of outdoor movies this week. With a showing of Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World, Lawrenceville-based US Auto Sales presents the annual Movies on the Lawn summer series that kicks off this Friday night, April 8th on the Lawrenceville Lawn at 210 Luckie Street.

The second Friday of each month – April through August – Lawrenceville welcomes residents and guests to enjoy an evening under the stars watching family friendly movies on the City’s newest green space. Food trucks will be on-site and other concessions will be available for purchase by local vendors as well.

“A lot of thought goes into the lineup of movies that we select for this event,” said Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson. “Parents are always in search of family-friendly activities in the community, so we like to show a wide range of movies that will appeal to children, teens, and adults as well.”

To fully bring the Jurassic experience to life, the City is also providing an opportunity for guests to take pictures with the Jurassic Park Jeep JP12 – a full replica of the famous Dennis Nedry Jeep Wrangler number 12 he used while trying to steal dinosaur embryos in the movie Jurassic Park.

Although the movies will begin promptly at dusk, guests are encouraged to arrive early to explore the Historic Downtown Square for shopping, dinner, desserts and more.
Free parking is available throughout the downtown district and onsite at the Lawn. For seating options, bring blankets or lawn chairs, but please note that open flames and pets are not allowed on the lawn.

Coming May 13th, don’t miss the next edition of Movies on the Lawn as Gwinnett County’s oldest city honors National Historic Preservation Month with a showing of Universal Pictures’ Back to the Future.
