Watch a movie in the great outdoors! Join us for our citywide Summer Movie Series featuring family-friendly films through August. Admission is free! Please feel free to bring your own snacks and comfy chairs or blankets, as a limited number of chairs will be available.

In Brave, Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

Scapino!

By Frank Dunlop and Jim Dale

Benjamin Posner, Director

Based on Molière’s Les Fourberies de Scapin, 1665, this story is set in Naples, Italy, where the leading character Scapino schemes a complex plot to help two pairs of lovers overcome parental opposition that, it turns out, does not exist. A slapstick farce! There will be singers, acrobats and jugglers.
