Let's start with a shout out to all our great sponsors and sustaining members — wouldn't be here if it weren't for all of you. Thank you.

On to movies — great lineup for you this weekend. Playing Friday, July 21, and Saturday, July 22, we have, at 6 p.m., the 2020 family comedy adventure “Dolittle.” What a fun movie — Dr. Dolittle lives in solitude behind the high walls of his 19th century English manor. HIs only companionship comes from an array of exotic animals that he speaks to on a daily basis. But when young Queen Victoria becomes gravely ill, the eccentric doctor and his furry friends embark on an epic adventure to a mythical island to find the cure.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas and Jim Broadbent — voices provided by Emma Thompson, John Cena and Octavia Spencer.

Our second feature each evening, starting at 7 p.m. is the 1931 classic horror film “Dracula.” In this classic tale, the dashing, mysterious Count Dracula travels to London and takes up residence in an old castle. Soon, he begins to wreak havoc, sucking the blood of young women and turning them into vampires. When he sets his sights the daughter of a prominent doctor, vampire hunter Van Helsing is enlisted to put a stop to the count's never-ending bloodlust.
