Save Money in this Sunday's paper

Make the most of the last few weeks of the summer by enjoying family-friendly movies on a 30-foot screen outside SouthPark mall each Friday through Aug. 22. The evenings will begin with live music and other activities at 7 p.m., and the movie will start at dusk. Bring your lawn chairs and blanket, and arrive early to grab an easy dinner from SouthPark’s food court. The first movie, on Friday, is “American Girl: Isabelle Dances into the Spotlight.”
