Maggie Houts, Event Planning Specialist with Clarksville Parks and Recreation, says patrons can feel safe coming to the Movies in the Park event. 

“We are implementing new guidelines to make sure this event is safe,” Houts said. “It’s outdoors and we’ll be asking everyone who attends to maintain social distancing.”

Moviegoers can expect these measures:

  • Large white squares will be painted on the grass at Liberty Park Athletic Field to ensure that social distancing is maintained. Each square will be painted 10 feet apart from each other.
  • These squares will serve as seating areas.
  • Different size squares will accommodate different sized groups. Large squares for four or more people and smaller squares for three or fewer people.
  • Staff will be onsite to monitor social distancing within the squares.
  • A limited number of squares will be available, and squares will be assigned first-come, first-served. The public is encouraged to arrive an hour before the movie begins.
  • Guests may bring a picnic dinner.
  • Cloth face covers are strongly encouraged.
  • Guests are encouraged to use hand-sanitizing stations that will be placed throughout the event.
  • Public restroom facilities are available.
  • CDC guidelines and social distancing signage will be placed throughout the park.

“We are so excited to amend this event and be part of the City’s reopening process,” Houts said. “We hope to see a good turnout, and for everyone to enjoy themselves while staying safe.”
