Free Akron Outdoor Movies will host the 8th Annual Free Outdoor Movie Night at Glendale Cemetery, Saturday, September 21, 2019. The film for the evening will be “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1977, rated PG).
Close out the last weekend of the “Summer of Space” by gathering around our inflatable mothership of a screen for this alien movie classic under the stars. Gates, trolley service, activities, concessions, and food trucks will open at 6 p.m. and the movie will start around 8 p.m.
Instead of storming Area 51 this weekend, we invite you to get in contact with your inner alien by coming in sci-fi attire and joining the costume parade at 7:30pm. Come as early as 6 pm to tour The Civil War Memorial Chapel, enjoy the beautiful grounds, and picnic on the Great Meadow, with local food trucks including Stray Dog Cart. The West Hill Neighborhood Organization will also be selling snacks, popcorn, and drinks. Pink Velvet Studio will lead an alien craft and everyone is invited to stack rocks in the shape of Devil’s Tower with Ed Cote.
