As you have seen on the event list for July, we are having classic films on Wednesday nights starting in July. Of course these shifts filled fast, but if you’re interested in attending as a patron your Usher Perks will come in handy! Personally I can’t wait to see Jaws on the big screen. That movie’s so scary I still have to check the bath tub for sharks!
Executive Director Ted is excited about the series and here’s what he had to say about it:
Dear DPAC Friends,
Over the past few years, many of you have asked: why doesn’t DPAC show movies in the summer? Not content to accept responses about the wonderful programming of our ANDkids World Film Festival (which returns August 3-6), you have demanded movies for you. Well, here they are! This summer, we have programmed a series of film classics that cannot be missed! Come one…come all! Bring the kids!! Beat the heat!!! Wednesday nights beginning July 6, you will have the unique opportunity to see a selection of Hollywood classics as they were meant to be seen!
Hope to see you here!
