Movies in the Park is back this summer in Portage beginning Friday, May 28.

This Friday, the Portage Parks & Recreation’s free “Movies in the Park” program will kick off with the 80s centric 'Goonies'. The movie follows a group of young misfits called 'The Goonies' as they discover an ancient map and set out on an adventure to find a legendary pirate's long-lost treasure.

Each of the weeks will feature a different family-friendly classic movie.

One of the cool features used to make the experience more like a drive-in is a transmitter that pumps the movie's audio to your vehicle radio. Ramona Park is located at 8600 South Sprinkle Road.
