Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa recently announced that it will host its free movie series at Government Plaza after the success of the inaugural event last year.

Movies in the Park is a six-week recurring event where members of the Tuscaloosa community can gather at Government Plaza to enjoy family-friendly movies free of charge.

Families are encouraged to come out just after dusk for a film and local eats from area food trucks. After the movie, there will still be time to head back home for bedtime.

"I think one thing we could use more of in 2022 is togetherness," said DC Daniel, TSM Tuscaloosa’s Director of Content. "The pandemic and so many other things have torn West Alabama apart and this is a great opportunity to see everyone come together and have a wonderful time under the stars of the city of champions!"

The series will begin with a June 4 showing of the Disney classic "The Jungle Book."

Lovers of Disney movies will want to make sure they don't miss the following week's film either, as "Finding Nemo" is on deck for June 11.

On June 18, hopefully no one runs into the Wicked Witch of The West at Government Plaza. The movie for that week will be "The Wizard Of Oz."

Dog lovers everywhere will love the June 25th selection, "Old Yeller."

"101 Dalmatians" will follow on July 7.

The six-week series will end with Christmas in July with the holiday favorite "Elf" being shown on July 9.

If you're a food truck or business owner looking to secure vendor space at the event, reach out to Denisha Patel at
