Pack a blanket and head on over to The Lawn every Friday evening at sunset in June for featured films playing under the stars. Each Friday night we will kick off the evening with a playlist of songs from the movie and about an hour before each film begins different local bands will perform live incorporating tunes from featured flicks. The movie will begin between 8 – 9 p.m., pending sunset. Be sure to check the schedule.
