Mocksville Hosting Free Movie in the Park on Friday, October 25th!

Kick-off the Halloween season by bringing your friends and family to Downtown Mocksville for a free outdoor showing of Frankenweenie on Friday, October 25th. The movie will begin at 7 p.m. at Mocksville Downtown Park on Main Street.

Young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) is a science nerd and outsider at school, but he does have one good friend: his dog, Sparky. But then, tragedy strikes and Sparky shuffles off this mortal coil. Victor is heartbroken, but his science teacher (Martin Landau) gives him an idea of how to jolt old Sparky back to life. The experiment is successful, and all goes well until Victor’s fellow students steal his secret and use it to resurrect other dead animals — with monstrous consequences.

The movie is rated PG and is 1 hour and 3 minutes long.

A parent or guardian is required to stay with children during the movie.

Frankenweenie is the final movie the Davie County Library and the Town of Mocksville will be hosting at the park this year.
Please bring your own chair or a blanket for seating. You can bring your own snacks or purchase from SCOOP’S Ice Cream, The Factory Coffee House, or our other local restaurants.
