The Free Movie Series, sponsored by the Summer of the Arts, will start Saturday between 8:20 and 9 p.m. on the Macbride Hall lawn. The event will kick off with a showing of the film Night at the Museum, with pre-screening activities in the Museum of Natural History in Macbride Hall.

The series, which will occur every Saturday through Aug. 11, will provide the community with free, family-friendly outdoor movies and activities. The featured films have been selected to appeal to children as well as adults, with a combination of newer films and beloved classics. On some Saturdays, the movie will be preceded by activities.

"It's nice to collaborate with the museum, because it has extended its hours so people can go look around in there who might not normally have the opportunity or time," said Shane Schemmel, a Summer of the Arts assistant executive director. "It's nice for people to be able to experience that piece of our community as well as viewing our movies."
