Family Fun and Flix to present ‘Annie’ at Warinanco Park on Aug. 11

UNION COUNTY, NJ — Family Fun and Flix, a free summer entertainment and film series presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, continues Tuesday, Aug. 11 with the presentation of “Annie” at Warinanco Park, on the border of Elizabeth and Roselle.

This showing of “Annie” is sponsored by Investors Bank. Free popcorn will be distributed for children in the attendance.
As part of the evening’s events, UC Fit Kids, a health initiative of the Union County Freeholder Board, will offer fitness fun for children before the movie, beginning at 7:30 p.m. UC Fit Kids’ Yoga is presented by the Elizabeth Branch of the Gateway Family YMCA Kid’s Boot Camp.

Academy Award nominee Quvenzhane Wallis stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who’s also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014.

“This event gives families an opportunity to enjoy an entertaining evening in our parks while picking up some healthy living tips,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Mohamed S. Jalloh. All movies will begin at dusk, with everyone encouraged to bring a blanket or beach chair to claim your spot on the lawn.

There will also be bleacher seats available.

Following “Annie” there will be just one more opportunity to enjoy a movie in the park, with the rescheduled “Dolphin Tales 2” on Tuesday, Aug. 18.
All movies will be shown, weather permitting.
