2012 Summer Freebies – “Movies Under the Stars” at the Market Common

Every Wednesday between June 6 (today) and through August 29, 2012, the Market Common will be showing a “Movies Under the Stars” at 9 p.m. in Valor Park.  Bring your own chair or blanket, food, drinks, and bug spray.  Tommy Bahamas Restaurant & Bar will be on hand to sell beer and wine.  Canipes Chocolate & Candies will be there selling popcorn and goodies.

I’m giddy about the schedule because clearly the person in charge of planning the movies is in my age group.  The series is filled with 1970′s and 80′s flicks, most of which I haven’t yet shared with my children.  Admittedly, the shows start a bit on the late side, but when you’re battling sunlight there isn’t another option.  Matters not – a few of the movies may contain mildly objectionable content and aren’t suitable for youngest audiences anyway.

My other thought about this series is how awesome it would be as a little cheap night out with my hubby.  Ohhhhh Grandma…care to have two, very cute, overnight visitors for a few Wednesdays this summer?

Here’s the schedule:

June 6 - Superman (original)
June 13 – Mama Mia
June 20 - Mary Poppins
June 27 - The Pink Panther (original)
July 4 – Forrest Gump
July 11 - The Karate Kid (original)
July 18 – The Wizard of Oz
July 25 – Elf 
August 1 – Goonies
August 8 - Hook
August 15 – Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
August 22 – Beetlejuice
August 29 – Grease

  1. Well, it’s a bit disappointing to hear that the outdoor movies screening at the Market Common are not appropriate for kids. This would have offered a good opportunity to skip cooking the family dinner and instead eat out as you enjoy some nice family movies ‘under the stars’. I hope though that they will start to screen films for all ages.
