Starlight Movie Night
Watch a movie outside under the stars at the library every Friday evening this summer. First, join our Pre-show Party from 7:30-9:00 PM to visit the library and play games inspired by the evening’s movie. Then, set out your lawn chair in the Library Park to settle in to watch a movie perfect for the whole family. Movie starts at dusk (around 9:00 PM) with an expected runtime of 90-120 minutes. Food vendor options will be available for purchase during the Pre-show Party. The food vendor will vary each week. Possible options include Snowie Bus, Bee’z Street Eats, The Scoop, and Poppin J’s. (Inclement weather will move the film indoors. Any changes will be announced on the library’s social media pages.) More information, including film titles, can be found in the event listing on the library’s website.
