Food Truck Friday & ‘Despicable Me’ At Roger Williams Park
(10.7) This Friday may be your last chance to see movies outdoors for a while. “Despicable Me” is the last in the Rhode Island Foundation’s new ‘Movies in the Park’ series at Roger Williams Park.
“Despicable Me” is the story of a man who delights in all things wicked. Supervillain Gru hatches a plan to steal the moon. Surrounded by an army of little yellow minions and his impenetrable arsenal of weapons and war machines, Gru makes ready to vanquish all who stand in his way. But nothing in his calculations and groundwork has prepared him for his greatest challenge: three adorable orphan girls who want to make him their dad.
The movie will begin at dusk on the Boathouse lawn. Admission is free and there will be plenty of popcorn. Get comfortable on a blanket or your favorite lawn chair. “Despicable Me” is paired with Food Truck Friday at the Carousel, so come for the food and stay for the movie. ‘Movies in the Park’ is just one of a series of activities the Foundation has planned in Roger Williams Park to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Check out the calendar.
Free, 6:45pm, Friday, October 7, Roger Williams Park, (directions)
