The following announcement was provided by the Mosesian Center for the Arts:
On Tuesday nights in July and August, the Mosesian Center for the Arts will present free film screenings in its air-conditioned Main Stage theater. Beat the heat and hit the road with favorite duos, trios, and bands of adventurers to globetrot with a good supply of popcorn, snacks, and beverages.
Mosesian Arts Executive Director Darren Farrington built the series around “road movies,” with each film including travel in search of someone, something, or just for the “joy” of vacationing. “At a time when we’re all tryin’ to get somewhere,” the arts center promotes, “these classic road movies are just the inspiration – or escapism – that we need!”
The scheduled films are:
- The Blues Brothers (1980): July 12, 8 PM
- A Goofy Movie (1995): July 19, 5 PM
- National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983): July 19, 8 PM
