ALBION – The new amphitheater at Bullard Park will be used Friday for an outdoor showing of the movie, Monsters, Inc.

The leaders of the Albion Summer Festival will be hosting the Friday movie nights. The first one will be 9 p.m. on Friday with more to follow on Sept. 3 and Oct. 1.

Zack Burgess, one of the organizers, said families are welcome to come down and watch the movie on a giant screen that will be set up at the amphitheater.

“We’re encouraging people to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on,” Burgess said.

There will be a food truck, The Shack, available for people to get something to eat.

The amphitheater opened on June 19 to an open mic concert featuring local bands and musicians.

The venue will host a scaled-down “Albion Summer Festival 6.5” musical festival on Aug. 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
