Louisville – Dusty Crophopper and his friends return for more adventure as “Planes: Fire and Rescue” winds up another successful season of Free Summer Movies at Iroquois Amphitheater on Saturday, August 8.

In addition to the free movie, Louisville Fire & Rescue will bring an engine to the park so children can interact with fire fighters. There will also be a fire safety message video before the movie begins.

"The Louisville Fire Department is pleased to participate in this community event which gives our personnel an opportunity to interact with our citizens in a more relaxed setting. While this movie is a fun filled production, the message of fire safety is one that relates to everyone and affects our community," says Chief Greg Frederick of Louisville Fire and Rescue.

“This is a great film to conclude the Free Summer Movie season. We have once again had another successful run bringing free entertainment to Iroquois Amphitheater with a great response from the community,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15).

The film is a sequel to Pixar’s 2013 “Planes”. After winning the Wings Around the Globe competition, Dusty is flying high but finds himself faced with a new challenge when he is forced to make an emergency landing at the Propwash Junction Airport and that leads to a whole new life.

The film stars the voices of Dane Cook, Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Danny Mann, and Cedric the Entertainer reprised their roles of Dusty Crophopper, Skipper, Chug, Dottie, Sparky, and Leadbottom, respectively.
