Free Summer Movies

May 28, 2010

The people who work for Intrepid Museum must be children of the 80s. How else can you explain this list of free summer movies? There are six movies – all blockbusters in their time – being shown under the stars on the Flight Deck. They encourage you to bring lawn chairs, blankets, snacks, etc., but outside alcohol is prohibited (does that mean they are selling their own?). I thought you might be interested…

Doors open at 7:30 and the show begins at sunset.

The schedule:

In 1976, when ROCKY, a low-budget film with an unknown actor named Sylvester Stallone, won the Academy Award® for Best Picture, it was as emotional a finale as the film itself. A two-bit boxer gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. The story of how Rocky goes the distance is one of the warmest, most exciting and stirring movies of all time.
