Movies in Washington Park: Wish

North Pointe Pavilion, Washington Park
Friday, July 26 at Dusk (around 8:30 PM)

Michigan City Parks and Recreation Department and the library join together to show Movies in Washington Park every summer. July’s movie is Wish. A young girl named Asha wishes on a star and gets a more direct answer than she bargained for when a trouble-making star comes down from the sky to join her. Rated PG. Runtime 1 hour 42 minutes. The movie is at dusk (approximately 8:30 PM) at the North Pointe Pavilion in Washington Park. The movie was originally scheduled to be shown on July 19 and was rescheduled to July 26 due to technical difficulties.
