End of Summer Celebration
September 16, 2023
Concert begins at 6:00 PM.
Movies in Town Center
Our movie nights come in two forms: Locust Family Movie Nights and the Locust City Cinema Party.
The Family Movie Nights are family-friendly events that typically feature an animated film (usually G or PG-rated) and offer a kid-friendly atmosphere.
The Locust City Cinema Parties offer a date-night vibe, targeting a wider range of age-groups. The Cinema Party vendors include beer and wine and will feature blockbusters and classics (PG to R rated) popular among adults.
All movies are located behind Locust City Hall, start at sundown, and usually host pre-show activities, so not all start times are the same. Check the City’s Facebook page for details as the movie dates approach
