The Flicks at the Fountain are held on a big screen in the parking lot by the Fountain. The parking lot is at the corner of State Street and Grand Avenue. Seating begins at 6 pm and movies start at dusk, about 8 pm, and end around 10 pm.

Be sure to bring blankets for chilly Summer evenings by the beach, along with comfortable low-back chairs.

Plan to bring some food/snacks and drinks, too. Otherwise, make life easier and buy take-out at one of the nearby restaurants in the Village. On the other hand, you could have pizza delivered to the parking lot.
