Thursday, June 7
Edinboro University's Porreco College will host four movie nights this summer.
The annual Porreco Under the Stars Series kicks off Thursday, June 7 with the movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and continues throughout the month with Coco on June 14, Thor: Ragnarok on June 21 and Beauty and the Beast: Sing-A-Long Version on June 28.
"We look for family-friendly films and what's current and popular," said director of operations Janet Bowker.
She likened the experience to the drive-in without a car. People often arrive as early as 7:30 p.m. with blankets and lawn chairs to save a spot.
Guests are welcome to bring soccer balls and Frisbees to pass time, and occasionally, the college arranges activities related to the movie.
Food trucks will be present and plan to donate 10 percent of their profits to the Oasis Project (a new farmer's market that will be located at 914 State St.)
The movie series started several years ago on Edinboro's main campus and Porreco College. This summer, movies will only be shown at Porreco. — Tracy Geibel
