Once again, the folks trying to bring the old Elitch Theatre back to life are holding a series of movies that star or have some connection to actors (or others) who are "alumni" of the hey day of the summer stock productions. Your $5 donation (or whatever you feel like contributing) will go to rehabilitating the theater and bring it back to life.
To kick off the season, we'll be enjoying that '50s Sci-Fi movie, "Forbidden Planet" (inspired by Shakespeare's "The Tempest"). Live music will start at 7 pm and the movie starts at dusk (around 8:30 pm). You can also dress up for the Sci-Fi costume contest (any Klingon or Jedi fans out there?). For more information, click here.
So bring a lawn chair, blankets, and/or pillows so you can view the movie comfortably, a snack and beverage (adult versions are allowed) so you don't go hungry (or pick up something from the food trucks or at the local Starbucks, yogurt store, or nearby Sprouts). Also, keep an eye on the weather report, and be prepared.
This is a very inexpensive but full and fun night out that also allows you to support a worthy cause. So be there!
