Summer Film Series: "Remember the Titans"

Date(s): August 22, 2014
Time(s): 7 p.m.
Location: George Bush Presidential Library Center's Presidential Pond

Are you ready for some football? We finish out our summer film series and rev up our team spirit by watching Disney's "Remember the Titans." This dramatic tale about the racial integration of high schools in 1971's Alexandria, Virginia, depicts how desegregation played out on the football field. The entire town is divided as Coach Boone (Denzel Washington) beats out the Coach Yoast (Will Patton) for the top coaching role, and the players jockey to earn their chosen positions on the team. As the players struggle through their differences to come together for a victorious season, the whole town follows suit. "Remember the Titans" is 113 minutes long and is rated PG.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs as we enjoy this free film under the stars by the Presidential Pond. Games and free refreshments will begin at 7 p.m., and the movie will start after sundown. Drinks are courtesy of Pepsi.

Summer Film Series: "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids"

Date(s): June 20, 2014
Time(s): 7 p.m.
Location: George Bush Presidential Library Center's Presidential Pond

As part of our ongoing celebration of the 25th anniversary of President Bush's administration, we're showing a movie he watched when he was living in the White House. Our second installment of our brand new Summer Film Series features "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" -- a family-friendly adventure of mythical proportions.

Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) is an absentminded inventor who accidentally shrinks his children and two kids from the neighborhood with his top secret shrinking machine. The problem is, before he realizes what's happened to them he sweeps them up and throws them away! Now they must face incredible dangers as they try to make their way home through the jungle of their own backyard: flood-inducing sprinklers, dive-bombing bees, a runaway lawn mower and more. Released by Walt Disney Pictures in 1989, this film is 93 minutes long and rated PG.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs as we enjoy this film under the stars by the presidential pond. Games and free refreshments will begin at 7 p.m., and the movie will start after sundown.

Summer Film Series: "The Sandlot"

Date(s): May 16, 2014
Time(s): 7 p.m.

Join us as we celebrate America's favorite pastime: baseball! We'll start at 7 p.m. with baseball-themed games, food and music. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy the coming-of-age baseball hit, "The Sandlot." The movie will begin after dark.

Starring James Earl Jones, Denis Leary and a menacing dog nicknamed "The Beast," "The Sandlot" tells the story of new-kid-in-town Scotty who heads to the neighborhood sandlot, eager to make friends. He's not any good at baseball, but the others grow to accept him as they teach him about the sport. The team bands together when an autographed Babe Ruth baseball falls into the clutches of The Beast. Released in 1993, "The Sandlot" is 101 minutes long and rated PG.

All of the activities will take place in the beautiful setting near the pond behind the building. Enjoy free soft drinks and water, hotdogs and chips, popcorn and more, while supplies last. You are also welcome to bring your own food. Please no glass containers or pets.
