Coming Friday, August 6, as dusk settles over the city at Greenville City Park, join the community gathering that is the Banks Movie in the Park.

The Aug. 6 flick features none other than those slapstick sillies Tom & Jerry. However, this cat and mouse feature is not one of the animated classics from yesteryear or the remake from 1992. It’s the newly-released 2021 live-action/computer-animated comedy starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Colin Jost, and Rob Delany.

And for those wondering, yes, the film features, via archival voice recordings, Portland’s-own Mel Blanc, the voice of many beloved Warner Bros. classic cartoon characters — from Bugs Bunny to Yosemite Sam to Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, to name but a few of the reported 400 voices he recorded in his career.

Additionally, the 2021 Tom & Jerry film features the work and voices of William Hanna, June Foray, and Frank Welker on piano and who voiced Tom the cat.
