The Lake Anne Summer Film Festival will return to the plaza May 11, with themed outdoor movies airing monthly through September.

Lake Anne Plaza held its inaugural summer showings in 2013, and based on that success has expanded it for 2014.

This year’s movie categories include Date Night, Family, Retro, and Classic. So get out your lawn chairs and a picnic and head to the plaza for the free shows under the stars.

MAY 11 – MAMMA MIA! (MOTHER’S DAY)

JUNE 8- UP (FAMILY)

JULY 13 – BREAKFAST CLUB (RETRO)

AUG 10 – CASABLANCA (CLASSIC)

SEPT 14 SKYFALL (DATE NIGHT)

Movies begin at sundown (about 8 p.m.)

    Can someone please explain why the family movie week was chosen to be scheduled while school is still in session? Keeping kids (especially school-aged kids who will want to see “UP” out until 10pm on a Sunday night school night is kind of ridiculous. Why not have family night scheduled for a date during the school summer break?

    • Karen Goff

      That’s a good question. I will pass this on the organizers.

    • Noelle

      Glad you pointed that out. I’d like to attend as well, but on a summer Sunday night! 🙂

    I love Bond movies, but Skyfall for Date Night?

    Why have family night? Kids have the attention span of about 15 minutes then all they will do is run around the plaza. Why not schedule an extra movie night during the week for the kids especially when they are out of school and let the adults enjoy a late movie under the stars?

    Actually it’s worse than you think: the “Family Night” movie isn’t only “Sunday on a school night” — it is also the night before the Grade 5 Science SOL exam. Doubt any families with 5th graders will be attending. #schedulingFAIL
