Marietta Movie Night takes place on Friday, September 11, 2009 at Laurel Park. The event is part of “A September to Remember” in association with Marietta’s 175th Anniversary. The featured movie is Night at the Museum 2 starring Ben Stiller. The outdoor movie starts at dark, but be sure to get there early to enjoy a picnic or a visit to the duck pond.
