Movie in the Park Hotel Transylvania

Hotel Transylvania PosterThe Greater South Loop Association would like you to join them for a free movie in Daniel Webster Park, located at 1401 S. Indiana Ave. on July 30, 2013. In cooperation with the Chicago Park District’s Movies in the Park and the city’s Night out in the Parks initiative, the GSLA is sponsoring the family-friendly animated blockbuster, Hotel Transylvania. The movie starts at dusk.

Hotel Transylvania is a resort for monsters only. It’s a ghoulishly delightful respite from mean-spirited humans. Count Dracula invites his monster friends—Frankenstein’s monster, Mummy, a Werewolf family—to the hotel to help celebrate the 118th birthday of his daughter, Mavis. All goes according to daddy’s plan until a 21-year-old hiker stumbles upon the hotel and more importantly, Mavis. How does Dracula protect his daughter from this human intruder? How does he save Hotel Transylvania?

Released on September 28, 2012, Hotel Transyvania set a record for the highest September opening weekend ever, eventually earning almost $350 million at the box office. Featuring the voice talent of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon David Spade, and Cee Lo Green, the film was nominate for a Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film. A sequel is scheduled for release in 2015.
