Are you ready for a night out at the movies without fear of contracting COVID-19? We sure are.
Get ready to watch “Black Panther” on Friday followed by “The Princess Bride” on Oct. 24, “Coco” on Oct. 30 and “Goonies” on Nov. 6.
“We’ve painted six-foot pods in the grass for groups of four to safely watch the films,” said Soozie Eastman, president of the Louisville Film Society. “Bring a blanket to spread out or folding chairs or both since it’s getting chillier at night.”
Each pod is separated by an additional 6 feet from the next pod to ensure plenty of social distancing. Bring a picnic dinner or purchase food and drinks from the restaurant at Mellwood Art Center.
“This is a free event but we welcome a $20 donation per pod for the Film Society,” Eastman said.
