The Cayuga Heights Fire Department has been hosting free movie nights the last few summers, and this year’s series starts on Tuesday, June 27 with “The Sandlot.” They’ll be showing movies on Tuesday nights through the summer, as soon as it’s dark enough to see the screen.
Everyone’s welcome at 6pm each Tuesday, with food available to purchase from the Dos Amigos taco truck. The movie will start when it’s dark enough, which varies from week to week.
In the past, they’ve done “The Lion King,” “Star Wars,” “Top Gun,” “The Princess Bride,” and yes, “Sandlot” is a “rerun” from a couple of summers ago.
This year, they’ll skip the 4th of July and the second movie on July 11 will be “Tangled.”
A fourth summer of free movie nights at Ithaca’s Stewart Park, hosted by the Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Chemung Canal Trust Company, will begin in late July.
Fire Chief George Tamborelle says, “Bring the kids, chairs, blankets and let’s make this a summer long event!” If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the movie showing will be moved into the fire station’s truck bays.
The Cayuga Heights Fire Station is at 194 Pleasant Grove Road, next to the Corners Community Shopping Center, off Hanshaw Road in Cayuga Heights.
