Peter Rabbit ~ Free Family Movie Night Friday, May 24th, 8:30 p.m
Bring your family & friends and your favorite movie snack to Downtown Mocksville for a free outdoor showing of Peter Rabbit, Friday, May 24th. The movie will begin at 8:30 p.m. at the new downtown park on Main St.

The movie is rated PG and is 1 hour and 35 minutes long.

Peter Rabbit and his three sisters — Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-Tail — enjoy spending their days in Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden. When one of McGregor’s relatives suddenly moves in, he’s less than thrilled to discover a family of rabbits in his new home. A battle of wills soon breaks out as the new owner hatches scheme after scheme to get rid of Peter — a resourceful rabbit who proves to be a worthy and wily opponent.

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

Mocksville Movies in the Park are sponsored by the Davie County Library and the Town of Mocksville.
