If you're looking for some family fun this summer, then look no further. Outdoor movie nights are an exciting trend spreading through towns across the region.

With free admission and free refreshments (at most locations) there is no excuse to miss out on the fun.  Beginning at dusk on select Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays throughout the summer, nearby towns will present newly released movies open to the public. 

What better way to watch your favorite films than on a giant 20-by-25 foot screen with concert-grade sound systems under the stars?

All that you need to do is bring lawn chairs or blankets, gather your family and friends, pick the movie and have one of the best nights of your summer!
