The 2018 Outdoor Family Movie Series will conclude its summer season July 13 in Arkansas City with an animated film at Paris Park Pool, 600 W. Fifth Ave.

The aquatic-themed “swim-in” movie night will kick off at 7 p.m. with free admission to the pool.

Around sunset at 8:45 p.m., the free showing of the Disney animated classic, “The Little Mermaid,” will commence.

This G-rated film is cosponsored by the Arkansas City Convention and Visitors Bureau, which will provide free giveaways to event participants, and RCB Bank. It is an hour and 23 minutes long.

In this beloved cartoon classic, a mermaid princess makes a Faustian bargain with an unscrupulous sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land. While she gains the ability to walk, her voice is lost.

Concessions will be provided by the Arkansas City Recreation Commission and Paris Park Pool.

This movie will complete the spring and summer outdoor film slate, but a few more free films will be shown in 2018, including a possible movie in conjunction with Arkalalah for the second straight year.

“We are so appreciative of the generous sponsors who make these wonderful events possible,” said City Manager Nick Hernandez.

“If you are interested in being a sponsor this fall, please call myself or Andrew Lawson at 441-4415 to discuss pricing options. There still are some opportunities available!”
