Five Things You Need to Know — July 8, 2011
What every Plymouth resident — and Art in the Park visitor — should know today.
2. Heading downtown for Art in the Park? You'll notice there is no Music in the Air concert this week, but reggae band One Love will be performing downtown all day at Ann Arbor Trail and Forest Avenue. Please note that there also is no farmers market downtown Saturday.
3. Scream 4 opens at the Penn Theatre tonight. All seats are $3 and screenings are at 7 p.m. and 9:05 p.m. Parts of the movie were filmed here in downtown Plymouth. Here is a list of landmarks to watch for while enjoying the film. This is one of two recent Plymouth-made movies arriving at the Penn this summer. The film is rated R and runs 111 minutes.
4. Girl Scouts from local Troop 40196 are holding a book drive to benefit Bennett Elementary School in Detroit. Because of a fire, Bennett lost its school library and the scouts are helping it rebuild its book collection. New or gently used books can be dropped in the donation box at the Plymouth District Library.
5. Tonight at Compuware Arena Drive-In: Cars 2 (G) with Mr. Popper's Penguins (PG); Transformers: Dark of the Moon (PG-13) with Super 8 (PG-13) and Zookeeper (PG) with Green Lantern (PG-13). Tickets go on sale at 7:30 the night of the movie and all films begin at dusk (about 9:20 p.m.). Ticket prices and updated listings are available at the drive-in's website.
