The lineup for this summer’s Movies in the Park is being teased out online in a short film.

The nine-minute short, “The List,” was posted online last night by Downtown Grand Rapids Inc.

The film references the movies the agency will screen this summer.

Starring local musician Adrian Butler, “The List” features action and comedy, as Butler accepts a mission to steal the lineup for this summer's series from Mayor George Heartwell’s house for BarFly Ventures owner Mark Sellers.

City Commissioner Rosalynn Bliss also makes an appearance in the film, along with several other local celebrities.

The film was directed by Kevin Budzynski and his company Whiskey Neat. It is produced by Budzynski, Scott Erickson and Kimberly Van Driel.
