Dogwood Park’s After Dark movies to follow social distancing guidelines

COOKEVILLE – As the sky darkens on Friday nights in June, Dogwood Park will light up with outdoor movies.

The After Dark Movies in the Park series, presented by Cookeville Leisure Services and State Rep. Ryan Williams, begins June 5 with “Toy Story 4.” More family-friendly movies will follow on June 12, 19 and 26, all of them starting at dark. Admission is free.

This year, seating is limited in keeping with social distancing guidelines.

“There will be marked areas on the lawn for people to sit, with six feet between each space,” Rick Woods, Cookeville Leisure Services director, said. “Attendees can have as many family members in that space as they’re comfortable with. We will also have some rows of the tiered seating blocked entirely to maintain social distancing.”

Masks are recommended.

“Even though it’s an open-air venue, you will be passing people as you walk through,” Woods said. “Use caution, come with a positive attitude and enjoy the movie.”

Movies will be shown on a large screen in front of the Dogwood Performance Pavilion at 30 E. Broad St. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Concessions will be available.
