2019 - Year 6

Looking Back...

Back in the summer of 2019 we kicked-off Year 6 in Parcel 5 on Friday, July 12th with Napoleon Dynamite and then showed E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in MLK Jr. Memorial Park on Friday, August 16th.

In 2018 we celebrated 5 Years with 5 Movies: Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Office Space, Sing Street, The Greatest Showman, and Hocus Pocus. The Muppets was on the schedule, but had to be cancelled due to rain.
