Movie means loss of theater for fireworks viewing

'The Lone Ranger' opens on same night


“We haven’t promoted it, and we haven’t demoted it,” said McKenzie of the use of the lot. “Obviously, we would like to have people where our vendors are.”

This year, there are new security measures in place for the official viewing spot of the Fireworks Festival in Plains Park behind the Holten Richmond Middle School on Conant Street. The loss of Hollywood Hits may put more of a strain on the park as people have to be screened through checkpoints, making it harder to come and go, McKenzie said.
