Drinks? Check. Snacks? Check. Music? Check. Outdoor movies? Check.

FilmScene Starlight Cinema, presented by M.C. Ginsberg, will jazz up the Riverside Festival Stage in Lower City Park for the first time this fall with live entertainment and an outdoor showing of The Blues Brothers.

Gates will open at 6 p.m. Friday for a pre-film performance by Iowa bluesman Kevin “BF” Burt. Tickets are $5, which includes the movie, music, and free popcorn.

Guests will be able to purchase refreshments of all kinds, including pizza.

The movie will be projected in high-definition on a 20-foot-wide inflatable screen with a 5.1 surround-sound system.

The Starlight Cinema will show three other movies this fall, including Office Space on Sept. 21, Close Encounters of the Third Kind on Oct. 12, and Psycho on Oct. 19, which will be followed by a feature of a classic horror film chosen by popular vote online.

Proceeds from all the shows will aid FilmScene’s goal of opening a full-time cinema in downtown Iowa City.
