Movies on the Lawn - Summer 2016!

Cuthbertson’s Movies On The Lawn Back For Season Thirteen!


This year is the thirteenth season of the Movies on the Lawn program hosted by Councilman Mark Cuthbertson, the Town of Huntington – and major sponsor Huntington Honda. 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 Huntington Honda, 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 27th at Heckscher Park as the summer movies series starts with an epic showing of STAR WARS – THE FORCE AWAKENS (RATED PG-13).
