Saturday, July 20, 7:00pm

Moving in from Chicago, newcomer Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon) is in shock when he discovers the small Midwestern town he now calls home has made dancing and rock music illegal. As he struggles to fit in, Ren faces an uphill battle to change things. With the help of his new friend, Willard Hewitt (Christopher Penn), and defiant teen Ariel Moore (Lori Singer), he might loosen up this conservative town. But Ariel’s influential father, Reverend Shaw Moore (John Lithgow), stands in the way.

Rain Date is Friday, July 26.

The Garden will not provide chairs or lawn furniture. Ticket holders are encouraged to bring their own blanket and/or portable lawn chairs. Self-seating placement is first-come, first-seated. Please be respectful of other guests who are not in your group by maintaining social distance and only taking up the space you need. During the show, please remain seated so the view of the screen is not obstructed for your fellow guests for extended periods of time.

At the Garden, we continually strive to improve and make our grounds as accessible as possible for everyone. On Movie Nights, we have a designated accessible seating area on the pathway. Our movie screenings are accompanied by closed captioning during the length of the film. Most pathways, ramp to restrooms, and Gift shop are wheelchair accessible.

The Garden provides wheelchairs as a courtesy to visitors, but cannot be guaranteed based on availability. They are provided on a first-come, first-served basis at the Main Street Entrance, Parking Garden Entrance, and Visitor & Administration Building. A valid driver’s license or government-issued picture identification card (ID) is needed in order to loan you a wheelchair. ID will be held during your visit and returned upon return of the wheelchair.
