TYBEE ISLAND — Movies in the Park on Tybeel Island beginning at sundown Saturday with "Jurassic World."

The Tybee’s Development Authority/Main Street Program will host the family friendly movies the third Saturday of June, July and August in Memorial Park. They are free, compliments of the city with assistance from the Tybee Island YMCA.

This grassroots effort for family fun began two summers ago and has grown with community support. Movies will be shown once the sun sets and the stars begin to shine in park, off Butler Avenue between the library at 405 Butler Ave. and City Hall at 403 Butler.

"Jurassic World" is the fourth installment of the "Jurassic Park" franchise when two young brothers visit their aunt, an executive at the genetically resurrected dinosaur theme park known as Jurassic World. During their visit, chaos erupts as a newly created dino escapes and the park’s animal behaviorist comes to the rescue.

Organizers encourage movie-goers to bring a picnic, blankets and lawn chairs.

If it rains, the movie will be shown inside the YMCA gym.

The series continues on July 16 with the showing of "Tomorrowland" and on Aug. 20 with "Minions."
