In related news, beginning March 12 and continuing every second Saturday of the month, free family movies will be shown outside at Campbell Park in Lahaina at 6:30 p.m.

The event is made possible through the sponsorship of the Mark and Debi Rolfing Charitable Foundation on behalf of BJ Petrus.

The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise and Lahaina Restoration Foundation are coordinating the event.

Campbell Park was built and dedicated to the children of Lahaina by Abigail Maipinepine Campbell in 1877 in memory of her husband, James Campbell, founding partner of Pioneer Mill.

When the park was built, Lahaina was a dusty industrial town, and the children’s playground was popular.

A basketball court was built in the park in the 1950s, but fell into disrepair and was demolished in the 1980s.

With funds from the James and Abigail Campbell Foundation, Lahaina Restoration Foundation redeveloped the park in the early 1990s into the green oasis it is today.

Lahaina Restoration Foundation continues to maintain the landscaping at no cost to the benefit of the city.

The free movie schedule for the next six months is as follows: March 12: “Moana;” April 9: “Lilo & Stitch;” May 14: “The world of Nemo;” June 11: “Soul Surfer”; July 9th : “The little Mermaid;” August 13: “The surf is up.”

On Saturday, March 12, the event will kick off at 6:30 p.m., with later start times expected in early summer.

The seats will be on the grass. Participants are encouraged to bring mats, blankets or low beach chairs. No other seats will be provided.

Snacks and drinks can be brought from home or purchased from nearby restaurants. There will be no food or drink sales in the park.

Portable toilets will be provided and pets are not allowed.
