Commissioner Gibson to Host Free Movie in the Park May 28 With COVID-19 Pop-Up Clinic

Commissioner Jim Gibson and community partners will host a free Movie in the Park night at Silver Bowl Park on Friday, May 28, that will include a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic. Silver Bowl Park is located at 6800 E. Russell Road between Hollywood and South Broadbent boulevards.

Starting at 7 p.m. free COVID-19 vaccinations will be available while supplies last in addition to a family art project. Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot Janssen vaccine will be offered as well as the Pfizer vaccine. Those who receive the Pfizer vaccine, which requires two doses, can schedule an appointment at a local clinic to receive their second dose by calling 1 (800) 401-0946 or visiting the Southern Nevada Health District’s website at www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine. The featured movie is DreamWorks “Trolls World Tour,” which starts at 8 p.m. Partners include Clark County’s Parks and Recreation Department, Fire Department and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Southeast Area Command’s Safety Through Outreach and Prevention (STOP) program.

 “Because we are much closer to fully reopening our community after many months of dealing with COVID-19, we are happy to host a movie in the park night,” said Clark County Commissioner Jim Gibson. “We encourage people to enjoy this event and to take advantage of the opportunity to get vaccinated if you haven’t done so already because vaccinations are the key to putting the pandemic behind us.”

Attendees should bring blankets and lawn chairs to watch the movies comfortably.  Free sandwiches and refreshments will be served at 7:30 p.m. while supplies last.  Tickets for refreshments are required and can be picked up at the Whitney Community Center now through the day of the event. The Whitney Community Center is located at 5712 Missouri Ave and can be reached at (702) 455-7576.  

Residents can contact District G’s office at (702) 455-8531 if they have any questions about the series. District G residents also can sign up to receive a free email newsletter via the County’s website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov.
