The film series kicks off on June 7. On each night, there will be two movies; the first starts at 7:30 p.m. followed by a brief intermission and then the second film. 

Here is the schedule for the summer:

Movie-goers are encouraged to bring their own chairs, beer, wine and snacks. Rental lawn chairs will be available for $2. 

Pets are also welcome. 

Last year was the first summer at the location on Monroe Avenue. Before that, the movies were hosted at Ah-Nab-Awen Park and the events were known as Movies in the Park.
