Experiment in Self Reliance held its second Family Fun Fest: Outdoor Movie Series on Saturday, Aug. 13. Before a screening of “Big Hero 7,” kids where treated to bubbles and story time by the Forsyth County Public Library, safety advice from firefighters with the Winston-Salem Fire Department and anti-bullying advice from Greg “Catman” Good. Each gave back-to-school advice before the movie started and popcorn was served.

Great Commission Community Church provided volunteers and Frank’s Top Secret Cafe food truck was there to serve patrons.

The event came about after ESR surveyed the commu-nity around its headquarters on Dominion Street and found that parents wanted to come and take their kids to a safe place. ESR had Spanish subtitles on the movie for the multicultural audience.

The first two movie nights drew about 100 attendees. The final one will be held Sept. 17 when ESR will show “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
