Over the past few years there has been a huge surge in demand for outdoor movies, but who can blame us, what better way to spend a summer evening than taking the big screen outdoors? Luckily for us, some amazing community organizations are providing a great line up movies for summer 2015! 

Bring a blanket or lawn chair, dress warm (we may be having a hot summer but the nights still get cool!), and of COURSE don't forget the popcorn.
