Families are encouraged to come out just after dusk for a film and local eats from area food trucks. After the movie, there will still be time to head back home for bedtime.

"I think one thing we could use more of in 2022 is togetherness," said DC, TSM Tuscaloosa’s Director of Content. "The pandemic and so many other things have torn West Alabama apart and this is a great opportunity to see everyone come together and have a wonderful time under the stars of the city of champions!"

The series will begin with a June 4 showing of the Disney classic "The Jungle Book."

Lovers of Disney movies would want to make sure they don't miss the following week's film. we're going on an adventure with "Finding Nemo" on June 11.

On June 18th hopefully, no one runs into the Wicked Witch of The West at Government Plaza. The movie for that week will be "The Wizard Of Oz."

Dog lovers everywhere will love the movie on June 25th, it's "Old Yeller."

The following week will be for dog lovers as well with the classic "101 Dalmatians" being shown at Government Plaza on July 2nd.
