When Grassy Knoll Movie Nights came on the scene back in July, we didn’t know much about them, but we were excited. Outdoor movies are the best! Now, with a solid season of cult classics behind them – Lucas, Harold & Maude, Rear Window, The Princess Bride, Cool Hand Luke and Annie Hall – they’re wrapping up the year in October with Poltergeist. Appropriate for the season, is it not?
Arrive early for a Neighborhood Fall Festival before the movie. Belly-warming beverages from Hot & Cold, Bang Candy Company and Jackalope Brewery will be present, plus pumpkin decorating (BYOP), face painting by Chrome Halo, bobbing for apples, live music, a costume contest and “possible zombification” are all on the agenda. We think the new owner of that Ke$ha Halloween costume on Craigslist would be wise to debut his or her new digs and clean up – or glitter up – that costume contest prize.
Final Grassy Knoll Movie Night & Neighborhood Fall Festival on Sunday, October 23 in the side lot beside Bongo Java East. Fall Fest from 4-6pm, Poltergeist begins at sundown. $5 admission for the movie and festival (or $4 with a canned food donation), $1 for kids. $5 suggested donation for festival only.
