Flint, Michigan – Gather up your blankets and lawn chairs, Movies Under the Stars is almost here! Communities First, Inc. kicks off the popular summer outdoor film series on June 29. The series will celebrate 5 years of family friendly fun in 2018.
All movie nights begin with a pre-party that includes lawn games, dancing and music. Each experience is a little different and has included bounce houses, special guests and contests.
