Drive-In Movie Night
Looking for something to do with the kids this coming weekend? Head over to the parking lot at Trinity Episcopal Church for that old-time drive-in movie experience. On Saturday, August 25th starting at 7:30 p.m., they will be showing the classic, award-winning E.T.--Extra Terrestrial.
Refreshments will be available. Residents of Fairfield, Southport, and the surrounding area are welcome to attend. No affiliation with the church is required.
A feel-good flick for kids of all ages, the film was a blockbuster hit when it first debuted in 1982. Since then, it has continued to warm the hearts of all film-goers with its portrayal of childhood curiosity mixed with the excitement of science fiction. Roger Ebert says the movie is "like The Wizard of Oz that you can grow up with and grow old with, and it won't let you down." He calls it "wickedly funny" and "exciting as hell."
“We are delighted to host this wonderful movie for all our friends and neighbors,” said The Rev. Nicholas T. Porter Rector of Trinity Church. “We see this event as a rare opportunity for community togetherness and entertainment on a nice evening outdoors, before the Summer fades. Come one, come all.”
The movie night is Trinity Church's initiative to reach out to and welcome the larger community. It is part of their broader "Sound and Vision" events plan. They will also be hosting a champagne tasting as well as a community silent auction later in the year.
