Movie under the stars at Bird Park

Bird Park invites the public to watch a movie under the stars Saturday with a free showing of the animated comedy “Despicable Me.” The movie will start at dusk – roughly 7:45 p.m. — on the grass field next to the “willow pond” on Rhoades Avenue. Free popcorn and soft drinks will be served. Moviegoers should bring their own blankets and lawn chairs. Parking is available at the nearby Union Congregational Church parking lot and on Rhoades Avenue. The annual event is sponsored by The Trustees of Reservations, The Friends of Bird Park, and Victory Assembly of God in Sharon.
