‘Bee Movie’ moved to April 18; other news and notes

Biloxi Main Street has announced that its Town Green presentation of the animated “Bee Movie” planned for Friday has been postponed to next Friday, April 18, because of forecasted inclement weather this week.

The free presentation, part of Main Street’s hugely successful “drive-in movie” series on the Town Green, begins at 6 p.m., with door prizes and other family fun.

The movie will be shown at dark, and those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Soft drinks and snacks will be sold.

The movie is co-sponsored by the city and Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.

Main Street is asking those attending to donate one canned-food item for the Loaves & Fishes Soup Kitchen.

Woodlands Drive to close Monday for emergency repairs

The Biloxi Public Works Department is notifying residents of Woodlands Drive in the Woolmarket community that the street will be closed Monday beginning at 8 a.m. to repair a collapsed drainage line.

Since Woodlands Drive has no other outlets, residents who need to travel during the day should park at the road entrance before construction begins.

Biloxi Public Works staffers on Friday plan to notify individual residents of the work.

Public Works teams hope to have new drainage lines installed by the end of the day Monday.
