Trinity Church in Southport hosting old-fashioned "drive-in" movie FINDING NEMO on August 24th

Lights! Camera! Action!


Neighbors Welcome to Watch “Finding Nemo” Under the Stars at Free, End-of-Summer Get-Together

SOUTHPORT (JULY 15, 2013) – Back by popular demand, Trinity Episcopal Church in Southport is one again hosting an old-fashioned “drive-in” movie with a free showing of the Disney/Pixar family classic “Finding Nemo” under the stars on Saturday night, August 24th, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Residents of Fairfield, Southport and the surrounding area are welcome to attend the drive-in, which will be held in Trinity’s spacious parking lot on the corner of Pequot Avenue and Center Street.  No affiliation with the Church is required.
Timed at the end of the summer and just before school starts, this free event marks the second time that Trinity will be holding this community-wide event.  The movie, which will appear on two giant screens outdoors, tells the story of the over-protective clownfish named Marlin (Albert Brooks) who, along with a regal tang named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), searches for his abducted son Nemo (Alexander Gould) all the way to Sydney Harbour.  The film received universal critical acclaim and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, and was nominated in three more categories including Best Original Screenplay.  A sequel is currently in development, set to be released in November 2015.
“Our first Drive-In Movie Night last year was fantastic,” said Dawn Stegelmann, Associate Rector at Trinity Church. “It brought people -- and classic car models -- in our community together in a good old-fashioned style with a beloved family movie for all ages. This year’s event builds on that success and gives our neighbors even more reasons to come out and celebrate the end of summer as a community.”

Trinity is partnering together with local community businesses to make the evening a success – from the pizza to the popcorn to the soda and ice cream and even the film.  Bring your pick-up or pack the kids up in the station-wagon, minivan, or car. Don’t forget a few lawn chairs and maybe a blanket or two for some old-fashioned fun the whole family can enjoy!
The summer, drive-in movie is part of a series of community events sponsored by Trinity called, “Southport Sound and Vision.” Additional events will be announced in the weeks ahead.
