LEWISTON — The second outdoor movie night sponsored by local police will feature “Alvin and the Chipmunks” on Wednesday evening in the field behind Holy Family Church on Sabattus Street.
 
Officers Charlie Weaver and Joe Philippon and Sgt. Randy St. Laurent will make the popcorn, which is free. There will be games and family activities starting at about 6 p.m. The movie will start at 8:30 p.m. on a large outdoor screen. Those attending should bring blankets and chairs. 
 
The event is part of Come Have a Night Out on the Cops, an outreach to the community, Philippon said.
 
“We do a lot of community outreach that’s lecture-based,” he said. “This is very informal. It’s a positive icebreaker.”
It’s also an opportunity for parents to get all kinds of information from organizations, he said.
 
Lewiston Adult Education, a staffing company looking to hire substitute teachers, a group passing out information about lead poisoning will be there to share resources with parents.
 
The first movie night June 22 was well-attended.

“We got a lot of thank-yous,” Philippon said.

Police Chief Michael Bussiere and nearly an entire shift of officers showed up.

In case of rain, the movie will be shown inside The Dolard & Priscilla Gendron Franco Center at 46 Cedar St. A decision won’t be made until Wednesday afternoon. Philippon recommended that people check Lewiston Police Department’s Facebook page for updates.

 The July 13 feature film will be “The Sand Lot” at the Pettingill School park.
