Moviegoers can park in the Old 63 or Broadway lots at the park.

Guests are encouraged to bring a low lawn chair or blanket to sit on.

Karen Ramey, recreation supervisor for Columbia Parks and Recreation, said they are working on getting food and drinks at the event, but for now, guests are allowed to bring their own.

This event is sponsored by Columbia Parks and Recreation, the Columbia Daily Tribune and the Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau.
