(Collinsville): Head Uptown for Collinsville’s free outdoor movie series, featuring today’s blockbusters and family favorites, every other Saturday night from May 25 to July 6.
The series debuts on May 25th with Brave, the story of Merida, daughter of royalty, who is determined to carve her own path in life and defy age-old customs sacred to the lords of the land. Her actions unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom. The peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery before it’s too late.
On June 8th, the animated musical comedy based on the 1971 Dr. Seuss’s children’s book, The Lorax, will tell the story of a 12-year-old boy who searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
Showing on June 22nd is Rise of the Guardians which tells of when the evil spirit Pitch launches an assault on Earth, the Immortal Guardians team up to protect the innocence of children all around the world.
Wrapping up the series on July 6th, Alex, Marty, Gloria, and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent - Madagascar style - in Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.
“Movies on Main” will be held outdoors at the public parking lot at the corner of Main and Seminary. Movies begin at dusk. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.
