Here’s what we have planned for this fun event:

  • Buy concessions like nachos and water from Crunchtime Concessions,
  • Grab complimentary popcorn (while supplies last),
  • Meet a few 80’s “characters” for photo opps , and
  • Compete in a Rubik’s Cube station with 1-minute competitions to see who can assemble the fastest. The winner of each competition will win a prize.

Photo opps start at 6 p.m. and the movie will start at 6:30 p.m.
