Curious how Plymouth’s movies in the park are chosen? Travis Karlen, recreation supervisor at the city of Plymouth, says he looks at a list of available movies and then each employee from the parks and recreation department votes on their favorite. Those with the most votes end up on the “big screen” come summer.
Karlen notes animated movies tend to attract more viewers and admits he’s kind of excited about the July 11 showing of Puss in Boots. “[The movie] is kind of the craze,” he says. For those unfamiliar, Puss in Boots tells the tale of Puss in Boots’s attempt to clear his name after he helps Humpty Dumpty steal magic beans from criminals Jack and Jill.
Other upcoming movies in the park include the Muppets attempt to save their old theater from a greedy oil tycoon on July 25. Catch Disney’s latest princess Rapunzel in Tangled on August 1.
