Moonlight Movies: Zootopia

August 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership’s Moonlight Movies series continues Friday, August 4 with a showing of Zootopia on Betsy Paterson Square. Activities begin at 7:00 PM, and the movie begins at dusk.

There will be fun activities for children on Paterson Square before each movie. Light refreshments will be available for purchase from the Partnership and the Mansfield Fire Fighter’s Association, and the UConn Dairy Bar Ice Cream Truck will be selling everyone’s favorite sweet treat.

ZOOTOPIA

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together-a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

Zootopia is rated PG and has a run time of 1 hour and 48 minutes.

FUN AT SEVEN; MOVIE AT DUSK

Join us for fun activities hosted by Windham Hospital and face-painting starting at 7:00 PM. The Mansfield Fire Fighter’s Association will have water for sale, the Partnership will have fresh-popped popcorn available for purchase, and the UConn Dairy Bar Truck will be parked next to Paterson Square.

DINNER & A MOVIE

The creative culinary minds at Dog Lane Café are cooking up special menu items for each movie night! Enjoy dinner before the movie, then walk across the street to Betsy Paterson Square for the fun and film!

The menu for Zootopia features Chief Bogo Cape Buffalo Chicken Dip – Yum!
