The city of Gary doesn't have a movie theater, so it is plans to show a pair of movies Friday at Marquette Park near Lake Michigan and is looking at making it a monthly event.

Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson says the goal is provide a fun night for families. The movies Friday will be "The Croods" and "The Tree of Life." The cost is $10 per car, and moviegoers will be able to listen using their car radios.

In an attempt to create a drive-in theater effect, there will be vendors selling movie snacks including popcorn, hotdogs and elephant ears. There will also be an inflatable fun area for children.

The goal is to have a movie night the first Friday of each month from May to October.
