Join us this week on Thursday, August 9 for a showing of Gnomeo & Juliet (2011/Rated G). This British animated take on William Shakespeare's classic play Romeo & Juliet finds Mrs. Montague and Mr. Capulet- two elderly neighbors who despise each other. When they leave their gardens, their gnomes come alive. The Montague garden is filled with blue garden gnomes, and the Capulet garden houses red garden gnomes - and they don't get along until Gnomeo and Juliet meet and fall in love!  

LOCALLY GROWN - Gnomeo & Juliet

Join us on Wallace Plaza for a Gnome Scavenger Hunt! Kids of all ages can search for hidden gnomes that reveal a path of trivia clues that lead to prizes! Form a team or hunt for gnomes on your own - but rest assured you don't have to remember your 9th grade English Lit class - this is Shakespeare trivia even the kids will know! Every movie night features activities like hula hoops, bubbles, sidewalk chalk and FREE popcorn for all! The movies start at sundown (approximately 8:45PM), activities start at 8PM.
