The Thing film to be featured Friday at Mill Race Park

The Columbus Parks and Recreation Department and Columbus Park Foundation will be hosting a horror movie classic Friday night in Mill Race Park, with an outdoor showing of John Carpenter’s “The Thing.”

Organizers encourage you to bring a blanket and snacks to enjoy the film. And you might want to bring bug spray.

Hog Molly Brewing Co., Miss Rachel’s Neat Treats, and TaColumbus will also be participating Friday night.

Although the monthly Movies in the Park showings are open to all ages, this horror film has an R rating. Participation will be left up to parents’ discretion.

The free film will start at about 9:30 Friday evening.
