Cinema under the stars
Gwinnett has wide offering of outdoor summer movies

An adventurous mouse, a royally reluctant ogre and a kung fu warrior panda will star on big screens as Gwinnett celebrates the summer with outdoor movies.

Residents are invited to bring along lawn chairs, blankets and picnic baskets to enjoy summer evenings at various movie venues. This weekend, characters in books will come to life as the movie "Inkheart" is featured in Mall of Georgia's Movies Under the Stars series. At Cinema Under the Stars in Suwanee, a tap-dancing penguin will find his true calling in "Happy Feet."

At right is a list of upcoming outdoor movies showing throughout the summer in Gwinnett.
