Good morning filmgoers!
The temps are supposed to climb into the mid-90′s today. And while that may be great news for beachgoers, it will probably be uncomfortable for most moviegoers. Prepare for the weather – bring water and an umbrella to stay out of sun.
We don’t want you to lose your place in line searching for hydration so the TCFF staff will also walk along the queues selling water to anyone who needs to cool down.

Today is the last day of Kids Fest. It’s been so much fun so far so if you haven’t taken your kids yet, don’t miss out on the last day of this great event. Today’s $1 film is Legends of Valhalla: Thor. Every kid who goes to the film gets a Kids Fest passport stamped with After the film, check out the lawn party, “Movie Style: Make Up, Costumes and Set Design.” For a full rundown on today’s activities, click here.
The Open Space movie tonight is yet another great thing to bring the kids to: WALL-E. As always, the film starts at dusk so bring a blanket or a lawn chair to see this great film about a robot that embarks on an adventure that will change the fat of mankind.
