A beautiful sunset is visible in the distance as a group of friends gather for the Delmont Recreation Board's 'Movies in the Park' event on Friday, July 15, 2016 at Newhouse Park in Delmont. Pictured (from left) are Brett Trottier of Murrysville, James Capone of Export, Max and Kirstin Martin of Delmont, and Kate Lonergan of Murrysville.

The Delmont Recreation Board’s “Movies in the Park” summer series will kick off Friday night with an inspirational story based on a New York Times bestselling novel.

“Wonder” tells the story of a young boy who suffers from Treacher Collins Syndrome, a genetic disorder characterized by facial deformity, as he begins attending school for the first time as a sixth-grader.

The film will be shown at dusk at Newhouse Park, on Newhouse Park Road off of Stotler Road in Delmont.

This summer’s films will include “Despicable Me 3,” “A Wrinkle in Time” and “The Goonies.”

Families are invited to bring blankets and chairs. There is no cost to attend, and showings are open to the public.

For additional information, including weather-related cancellations, see the “Delmont Recreation” page on Facebook.

Recreation board officials are also seeking additional sponsors for the “Movies in the Park” series.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
