Great movies for you this weekend and they are free. Thank you to all our sustaining members and sponsors.

Starting with the August movie lineup, playing Friday and Saturday, at 6 p.m. we have the 1995 family comedy “Babe.” Gentle farmer Arthur Hoggett wins a piglet named Babe at a county fair. Narrowly escaping his fate as Christmas dinner when Farmer Hoggett decides to show him at the next fair, Babe bonds with motherly border collie Fly and discovers that he too can herd sheep. But will the other farm animals, including Fly's jealous husband Rex, accept a pig who doesn't conform to the farm's social hierarchy? Stars James Cromwell with the voices of Christine Cavanaugh, Miriam Flynn and Miriam Margolyes.

Our second feature both evenings, starting at 7 p.m. is the 2003 sport drama “Seabiscuit.” In the midst of the Great Depression, a businessman coping with the tragic death of his son, a jockey with a history of brutal injuries and a down-and-out horse trainer team up to help Seabiscuit, a temperamental, undersized racehorse. At first the horse struggles to win, but eventually Seabiscuit becomes one of the most successful thoroughbreds of all time, and inspires a nation at a time when it needs it most. Starring Jeff Bridges, Tobey Maguire, Chris Cooper and William H. Macy.

Don't forget Saturday, Aug. 12, as the Luckey Walker Show featuring Masami takes our historic stage bringing great classic rock & roll and original compositions. Doors open at 6 p.m. concert starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are only $10. Then the following weekend, August 18, in conjunction with the Community Reunion start of festivities, we have a free concert on our stage featuring Acoustic Alignment with Aaron Rodgers along with Steven Christie and Friends. The concerts starts at 7 p.m.

Hope to see you at the movies and all our special events.
