Free outdoor movies offered this weekend

You have two chances to see free movies this weekend at outdoor events in Bartholomew County.

The Student’s Fund of Hope will be hosting the film “Moana” on Friday night on the Town Square and Columbus Young Professionals are having a showing of “Back to the Future” on Saturday at Mill Race Park.

The “Moana” showing will benefit the Student’s Fund of Hope a newly created effort to take care of needs amongst the students and families in the Flat Rock-Hawcreek Schools.

There will be face painting, creating leis and an arts project around the Heart of Te Fiti stone featured in the movie. There will also be food including hot dogs and popcorn. All of the activities are free, but if you are able, you are asked to make a donation to the group’s efforts.

Specifically, organizers are raising money to help purchase a headstone for Trevor Frazee , a Hauser student who died recently from a heart attack. They would also like to aid the families and victims of a serious crash that happened in front of the high school, with any  remaining proceeds will go towards helping students in the community.

The event starts at 7 p.m. with the movie at 8 p.m.

Columbus Young Professionals Moonlight Movie activities will start at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night with the movie starting at dusk. They will have popcorn, candy, Ice Pops by Flip Flop Ice Pop and a cash bar provided by Simmons Winery and 450 North Brewing.

Organizers suggest that you bring lawn chairs and blankets and dress in your favorite ’80s themed outfits.
