The indoor line-up is Star Wars The Force Awaken, 7pm on June 16th with Virtual Reality Stations available from 4 to 6pm.

It is helpful if you bring a copy of your ticket, but we can check you in without it. Please bring some form of ID.
All outdoor entertainment precedes the films starting at 6:30 pm and the film begins at dusk. Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli will be providing great sandwich deals with all proceeds going to the theatre. We have an inexpensive concession stand with candy, popcorn, sodas and water. Bring your blankets, low back chairs, food and drink for an enjoyable evening on the lawn. Well behaved dogs are allowed but keep in mind small children like to run and play before the film.
