Cuthbertson’s Movies On The Lawn Back For Season Fourteen

This year is the fourteenth season of the Movies on the Lawn program hosted by Councilman Mark Cuthbertson, the Town of Huntington. This year’s lineup will have something for everyone to enjoy. 

"This is great family entertainment. Pack up your picnic supper, blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy this summer's movie line-up,” said Cuthbertson. "With every passing year, the crowd of movie-goers multiplies so it's wise to arrive at each venue a little early. We plan to have some fun things to see and do before each show. Our thanks to Jonathan’s Ristorante of Huntington Village and LaCasa at Crab Meadow Beach for co-sponsoring this year’s line-up.”


The force will be with us on Monday, June 26th at Heckscher Park as the summer movies series starts with the showing of STAR WARS – ROGUE ONE (RATED PG-13). 

This is the latest installment in the Star Wars trilogy that takes place in a land far, far away about the epic adventure of the Rebel Alliance’s plan to steal the secret plans of the Empire’s destructive planet killer - the Death Star. [RAIN DATE: JULY 17TH]


Then on Thursday, July 6TH, pack up the family, lawn chairs and picnic supper and enjoy a nostalgic Drive-In night at Crab Meadow Beach in Northport with THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS (Rated PG).
