The city of Allentown’s Roosevelt Park, located at E. Saucon & S. Filmore streets, will host a city-sponsored concert and movie this coming weekend that has been rescheduled from last weekend due to inclement weather.

On Sunday, July 17, the City of Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation will present the next installment of the 2016 Movies in the Park series with “Hotel Transylvania 2,” starring Adam Sandler, Andy Sandberg, and Selena Gomez. The movie will begin at dusk.  The public is invited to come out and enjoy a great summer night in the park while watching a film on the city’s spectacular movie screen!

“Now that Dracula has opened the Hotel Transylvania’s doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing his vampire side.  So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a “monster-in-training” boot camp.  But things really get batty when Drac’s cantankerous, old-school dad pays an unexpected visit.”

The movie is rated PG and will run for roughly 100 minutes.

Prior to the movie screening, The Marine Band will perform live in concert beginning at 6:30pm.  The band will be joined by children enrolled in the Allentown Summer Playground Program at Roosevelt Park.

Food vendors including “OMG Smoothies” and “The Popcorn Pit” will be present in the park during the event.

The originally scheduled performance by the Marine Band in West Park on Sunday, July 17 has been postponed.
