Family Float & Movie Night Take One: "Sing" Comes to the City's Big Screen Friday Night

By Julie Perine on July 09, 2018 via

The first of Bridgeport Parks and Recreation's 2018 Family Float & Movie Nights is Friday, July 13. 
In conjunction with Family Night at Bridgeport Pool will be the viewing of the animated musical, "Sing."
Featuring the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Seth MacFarlane, among other stars, the popular family movie will projected on the city's inflatable 16-by-20-foot screen as residents watch from the pool area - or inside the pool. Families are invited to bring their favorite pool rafts and floats for the occasion.
Price of admission is $3 for all ages, said Director of Parks & Recreation Joe Shuttleworth. The pool opens at 7 p.m. with the featured film starting around 9 p.m.
The pool concession stand will be open with everything from pepperoni rolls and chips to candy and ice cream treats available for purchase.
Released in 2016, “Sing” is a message of courage, hope and perseverance. Having been raised in the grandeur of the theater business, Buster Moon – a dapper Koala bear – is desperate to revive his late dad’s theater venue and decides to host a talent show.
Miscommunication about the prize money brings an entourage of humanoid vocalists – Witherspoon (a mama pig), MacFarlane (a sneaky mouse), Scarlett Johansson (a porcupine punker) and Tori Kelly (a shy elephant), included. After a series of mishaps and plenty of support and optimism, the show goes on and the theater’s original star – voice by Jennifer Hudson – saves the venue, financing its restoration. The cartoon is rated PG for some rude humor and mild peril.
The next Family Float & Movie Night will be Aug. 10, featuring the high-adventure film, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” starring Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson.
The 2017-released movie is about some high school kids who discover an old video game console and find themselves transformed into the adult avatars in the game. They quickly learn that it’s not a game to just be played, but also to be survived. Dangerous adventure follows, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. Other actors featured are Karen Gillan, Rhys Darby, Bobby Cannavale and Nick Jonas, among others. The film is rated PG-13 for adventure action, suggestive content and some language.
Same pool rates and times apply to the Aug. 10 show.
