Join us Saturday as the Luckey Walker Show featuring Masami plays our theatre for the first time. They will be bringing great classic rock & roll and original compositions to our historic stage. Doors open at 6 a.m., and concert starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are only $10.

Great movie line up for you this weekend also and all movies are free. Playing Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m. is the 1979 classic family adventure comedy “The Muppet Movie.” After Kermit the Frog decides to pursue a movie career, he starts his cross-country trip from Florida to California. Along the way, he meets and befriends Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and rock musicians Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. When Kermit is offered a job by Doc Hopper to advertise the fried frog legs at his restaurant chain, Kermit turns Hopper down. However Hopper refuses to relent and pursues Kermit and his companions to a final showdown.

The star-packed movie features Jim Henson, Charles Durning, Mel Brooks, Bob Hope, Steve Martin and many more.

Our second feature, only on Friday evening at 7 p.m., is the 2010 true life story “Secretariat.” Despite her lack of experience, housewife and mother Penny Chenery agrees to take over management of the family thoroughbred farm after her father becomes ill. Successfully navigating her way through the male-dominated world of horse racing, Chenery, together with veteran trainer Lucien Laurin, fosters a gifted colt that ultimately crosses the finish line into history as the Triple Crown winner in 1973. Starring Diane Lane, John Malkovich and James Cromwell.

Don't forget next weekend is the community reunion and as part of the festivities we have a free concert on our stage Aug. 18 featuring Acoustic Alignment with Aaron Rodgers along with Steven Christie and Friends. Concert starts at 7 p.m.

Hope to see you at all our special events and movies. Thanks again to all our sustaining members, sponsors and volunteers — couldn't do it without you.
