September First Friday to Feature Outdoor Movie
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, family, and friends for an outdoor showing of “SING”! The event will take place on Friday, September 1st in downtown Greenville.
Main Street Greenville encourages everyone to dine, shop, and enjoy other activities starting at 6 pm, with the movie starting at dusk (around 8:15 pm).
In the movie, koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his theater to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.
Theater on Third is an outdoor movie experience and will be located in the city parking lot behind Bach to Rock. The movie will be projected onto the Nature’s Heart Yoga building (120 W. Third St.). The event is free and open to all, kindly sponsored by Greenville National Bank.
Pop, water, and candy will be available for purchase, with all profits donated to Main Street Greenville, and First UMC will have free popcorn (while supplies last).
In addition to the movie, the Ping Pong Ball Prize drop will be taking place on W. 3rd Street at 7 pm. In cooperation with the City of Greenville Fire Department, Main Street Greenville will be dropping 200 ping-pong balls from the ladder of a fire truck. The ping-pong balls will have colored dots on them, each color representing a different prize level.The ping-pong ball drop is sponsored by Greenville National Bank and Second National Bank.
