Be sure to take your own comfort items for watching the movie, including lawn chairs, blankets, etc. As soon as it starts to turn dark, the movie will start showing. The movie schedule is not out yet but if you take a look at the slideshow you will see a list of all the movies that customers have chosen to play on the big screen. The owner has said most of the movies will be non-cartoons, with the exception of 'UP' playing one of the Fridays. The movies are chosen to be enjoyable for adults but safe for kids to watch as well. It's made for a fun experience to spend your Friday nights doing as a family, a couple, or an individual.

If you haven't yet visited I Scream Ice Cream, then you're in for a treat.
