movie night

QUINCY — Join Arts Quincy at Jackson-Lincoln Swimming Complex from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, to kick off summer with a celebration featuring art activities, a meal, health information and a showing of the Disney movie “Encanto.”

The evening will open at 6 p.m. Blessing Heath System will begin to serve “walking tacos” for free at 6 p.m., and Kohl Wholesale will provide free frozen treats to enjoy with the movie. Tables will be available, but attendees are welcome to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.

Attendees will enjoy “Encanto” on an LED stadium-style screen at 6:30 p.m. While the movie plays, families can visit arts organization booths to make crafts and learn more about arts programming for kids.

“Encanto” is set deep in the Columbian mountains, where the Madrigal family possesses and extraordinary secret. Each member of the family can perform magic. Yet at the heart of the family is 15-year-old Mirabel, who does not seem to possess any unusual abilities. Faced with this harsh reality, Mirabel struggles to reconcile her place within her family while searching for who she truly is. However, she soon may be the Madrigals’ last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.

In a press release, Laura Sievert, executive director of Arts Quincy, said, “We’re thrilled to announce the return of these summertime arts events that are free and accessible to the whole community. We hope whole families will join us and not only participate in watching the entertainment but also learn a little more about what Quincy’s fine arts community has to offer students and families. Increasing access to quality arts and culture programming is among Arts Quincy’s most important functions.”

Participating organizations include the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County, Quincy Children’s Museum, Quincy Public Library and The Art Center.
