Residents of Fairfield, Southport and the surrounding area are welcome to attend the drive-in, which will be held in Trinity's parking lot on the corner of Pequot Avenue and Center Street. No affiliation with the church is required.
The movie, which will appear on two giant screens outdoors, tells the story of an over-protective clownfish named Marlin (Albert Brooks) who, along with a blue fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), searches for his abducted son Nemo (Alexander Gould) all the way to Sydney Harbor in Australia. The film won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, and was nominated in three more categories including Best Original Screenplay.
This is the second time the church has hosted a community-wide drive-in movie. "Our first Drive-In Movie Night last year was fantastic," said Dawn Stegelmann, associate rector at the church. "This year's event builds on that success and gives our neighbors even more reasons to come out and celebrate the end of summer as a community."
Trinity is partnering with local businesses for refreshments and for the film. Moviegoers are invited to watch the movie from their cars or to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
The movie is one of a series of community events sponsored by Trinity called, "Southport Sound and Vision." Additional events will be announced in the future.
