Thanks to my friend and former colleague Kevin Taylor, I was reminded once again that in addition to having an actual summer, Spokane of 2014 is enjoying another FREE outdoor-movie season at the South Perry Summer Theater. We're well into the season, what with screenings of "Big" and "Despicable Me 2" already having occurred.
Next up? "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which — as with all the screenings — will screen at dusk. Saturday's show, which is sponsored by South Perry Pizza, will benefit T.E.A.M. Grant. As the organizers say, the FREE screening is open to all, so "Show up early, bring your lawn chair, and join us at the Summer Movies!"
The event takes place in the lot in front of The Shop at 924 S. Perry. And did I mention the shows are FREE?
The rest of the summer schedule is as follows:
July 19 — "The Princess Bride": My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to … enjoy this movie.
July 26 — "The Lego Movie": Everything about this animated movie is awesome!
Aug. 2 — "The Raiders of the Lost Ark": I hate snakes! I hate 'em!
Aug. 9 — "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug": Precious redux.
Aug. 16 — "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure": Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K … er, The Shop.
