This series sequel to last year’s hugely popular local event will continue to raise essential funds to help community members survive and thrive in the continuing challenging current environment.
This summer’s family-friendly movie series will be held the first Thursday of each month at Peconic Bay Vineyards, 31320 Main Road in Cutchogue. It kicks off June 3 with a showing of Marvel’s 2018 megahit “Black Panther” and then follows with showings of the original musical “Hairspray” on July 1, Pixar’s “Inside Out” on August 5 and the ’80s classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” on September 2. Gates open at 6:45pm and movies start at sundown.
This year’s film lineup will include fun, interactive extras such as a hairdo contest during “Hairspray” and a kid’s pajama party theme during “Inside Out,” and a pizza ordering option for families looking to enjoy hot pizza delivery at 7:15pm at “Black Panther,” courtesy of Claudio’s Pizza.
