The City of Davenport announced on Tuesday the movie that will be playing this Friday, May 20th for the first Movies on the Mississippi of the 2022 season. This Friday, people will be able to watch the 1995 original version of Jumanji starring the late Robin Willams.

The fun will begin at LeClaire Park (400 Beiderbecke Dr) in downtown Davenport this Friday at 6 p.m. with games and activities. Food vendors will also be on hand serving up a variety of food and beverages.

The playing of Jumanji will begin around dusk on Friday and people will be able to enjoy the movie with the backdrop of the Mississippi River behind the movie. The other great part of Movies on the Mississippi is that admission is free.
