The fun starts at 7:30 p.m., with family activities, games, prizes and free refreshments, then the movie starts at dusk. Movies will be shown at the J. William Edwards Pavilion in the Park at Sixth, at the corner of East Solomon and Sixth streets, across Sixth Street from the Spalding County Courthouse.
In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the City Hall parking deck. Those attending are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating.
Friday’s movie is “Dolphin Tale.” The next movies in the series are “The Muppets,” June 15; and “Cars 2,” July 20.
The Flicks at Sixth free movie series is presented by United Bank, Spalding County, the city of Griffin and the Griffin Main Street Program.
To accommodate these events, the following streets will be closed to traffic from 6 p.m. until midnight on each movie date: East Solomon Street (eastbound side only) between Hill and Fifth streets; and Sixth Street (both ways) between Bank and East Solomon streets.
While these streets are closed, walk-up access will still be available to area residences and businesses ('Stache Studio, RN Fitness, Griffin Gallery, Sixth Street Pier, B’Unique Hair Salon, Championship Martial Arts, Jan’s Used Furniture, Angelo’s, Newton & Howell), said Griffin Main Street Program Manager Kira Harris-Braggs.
