An outdoor screening of “Back to the Future II” will be offered Aug. 29 at 8:30 p.m. on the Kent Town Hall rear lawn.
The event is co-sponsored by the Kent Historical Society, the Hills Film Festival, and the Kent Memorial Library.
The financial sponsors are Peter d’Aprile, owner of Kent Apothecary; Dave Fairty and Anne McAndrew, owners of Backcountry Outfitters/Annie Bananie Ice Cream, and Billy Morrison, owner of Morrison Gallery.
This is an anniversary year for the movie, set in 1985 and jumping to 2015, starring Michael J. Fox.
The Kent Historical Society’s exhibition theme this year is "Camps of Kent; Memories of Summer.”
“This movie is a perfect activity that is reminiscent of a camp event and we hope it will lay down new memories of summer for all of the residents of Kent,” said Melissa Cherniske, a trustee for the historical society, who had the original idea to show the movie.
Frank Galterio of the Hills Film Festival will be providing equipment, including a large screen, projector, and sound.
Local businesses may sell food on site; refreshments and snacks will be available to purchase.
