For a really great way to spend a great night out with the family, go no further than The Barnacle Historic State Park in Coconut Grove. The estate’s popular Movies-in-the-Park program features a showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Friday night, Aug. 24, at 8:30.
Presented by the Coconut Grove BID (Business Improvement District), visitors are invited to bring their blankets and chairs out for an evening under the stars — and the best part is, admission is free.
Movie-goers are encouraged to take the Freebee shuttle service that totes them to neighboring parking lots or they may save gas and take advantage of a bicycle valet service at the park, provided by Bike Coconut Grove. For more information please visit www.coconutgrove.com.
And for those who want to land the best possible spot on the lawn, guests are invited to the park early, at 8 p.m. Also, please note that no pets are allowed.
Need a nudge remembering the story line of this 2017 Star Wars? Well here you go: Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares for battle with the First Order.
Looking ahead, the September 28 film is “Meet the Fockers,” also rated PG-13. In this movie, newly engaged Greg and Pam join Pam’s straitlaced family on an RV trip to Miami to meet Greg’s eccentric parents. Get ready for lots of laughs wit this film.
Also enjoy Barnacle under Moonlight Concerts at The Barnacle every second Saturday between September and May.
