Main Street will be blocked off between 5th and 6th Streets this Saturday for the showing of The Great and Powerful Oz, which will be projected from Main Street. The free event, which is sponsored by Century National Bank is a great way for everyone to enjoy downtown Zanesville.

"It’s this Saturday, June 15th. Things start around 7 O’clock, something like that. We’ll have pre-entertainment before and then the movie will start as soon as it gets dark enough to show the film," said Linda Sowers, Manager of Outdoor Movie Flixks.

Sowers says she hopes to see the street packed with people and believes this is something downtown Zanesville really needs. No matter where you sit, you’re bound to get a good seat because of the great surround sound and projection.

"We would love to do it here in Zanesville on Main Street once a month throughout the summer and if we can get some more people involved, I think we can make it happen and it’ll be a good event for the community and for the businesses."

There will be a concession stand at the movie selling popcorn and other theater-type foods.
