Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Close Encounters of the Third KindOne of the coolest things The Belcourt does (arguably, since they’re so awesome in general) is host a series of free outdoor movies in their parking lot. It’s different from Movies in the Park in that they don’t play current or even recent blockbusters. No, they play awesome old hits and cool little films that you never would have seen otherwise.

The films happen every second Saturday through the summer, which means the first film is this weekend! They’ll be showing the Spielberg hit Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the film that teaches all other alien films what’s up. Also, REALLY made me dig Devil’s Tower when I was younger, but I digress.

The movie starts at dusk (probably a big after 8pm) on Saturday in their parking lot, which means you need to plan ahead for parking. I recommend by the Post Office. Actually, I just recommend you walk or bike if you can.

Enjoy the movie!
