FilmScene in the Park: Star Wars

May 28, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Han Solo Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker

We’ll be enjoying our summer nights with another amazing lineup at FilmScene in the Park! Our FREE outdoor series is presented by McComas Lacina Construction in collaboration with Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department.

We’re blasting off on May 28 with STAR WARS, presented as part of Science on Screen® with a pre-show presentation from Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Kenneth G. Gayley. In June, cows are back on screen with FIRST COW, a minimalist ode to friendship. Spike Lee’s CROOKLYN is a vibrant portrait of family life that feels right at home in a summer lineup. And coming in July, don’t miss 90s classic CLUELESS!

Plus, don’t miss a bonus episode of FilmCastPodScene, a special mini-cast as part of The Parking Spaces. Check it out here.

See you at the movies,
