    Um...I hate to be the one to bring this up, but I noticed that the forecast for tomorrow night is calling for thunderstorms. If so, perhaps Friday and Saturday are alternatives?

    July 23

    • Tom R.

      From their website,
      "In the event of rain, show will be moved indoors. Please visit www.rooftopfilms.com for rain details."
      but I don't see anything there - yet.
