Millbrook’s 4th Line Theatre is continuing its efforts to engage the community, with the cancellation of the outdoor theatre company’s 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic,

This time, 4th Line is launching an outdoor movie night at Winslow Farm (779 Zion Line, Millbrook) on four evenings in August, screening blockbuster family-friendly films from the ’80s and ’90s.

“We continue to explore ways to invite people to come to the farm and join us for some community togetherness in these unpredictable times,” says managing artistic director Kim Blackwell. “And we want people to know that their safety is our number one priority for all of our in-person events.”

Safety protocols include a limit on the number of attendees (advance registration is required), and people will be easily able to physically distance themselves from others on the farm’s 100-acre property. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs.

Thanks to the theatre’s longtime supporter Nexicom, admission to each film is free — although a donation to the theatre is suggested.

Movie sponsor Kernels Popcorn will have popcorn available for purchase, and 4th Line’s concession stand will also be open and selling soft drinks and water. Attendees can also bring their own refreshments if they prefer.

Each movie night is presented by Twilight Movies. Here are the dates and the films with registration links:

On each movie night, Winslow Farm will open at 7 p.m. for audience members to visit concessions and get set up for the movie, which will screen at dusk.
