Town of Huntington, NY - News Details

6/23/2016 - "STAR WARS: The Force Awakens" Lands at Heckscher Park June 27




This year is the thirteenth season of the Movies on the Lawn program hosted by Councilman Mark Cuthbertson, the Town of Huntington – and major sponsor Huntington Honda. This year’s lineup will have something for everyone to enjoy.

"This is great family entertainment. Pack up your picnic supper, blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy this summer's movie line-up,” said Cuthbertson. "With every passing year, the crowd of movie-goers multiplies so it's wise to arrive at each venue a little early. We plan to have some fun things to see and do before each show. Our thanks to Huntington Honda, Sparkling Water, Jonathan’s Ristorante of Huntington Village and LaCasa at Crab Meadow Beach for co-sponsoring this year’s line-up.”

The force will be with us on Monday, June 27th at Heckscher Park as the summer movies series starts with an epic showing of STAR WARS – THE FORCE AWAKENS (RATED PG-13).

Thirty years after the defeat of Darth Vader and the galactic empire, a new threat arises. Will Han Solo and Chewbacca lead the resistance to victory? Find out on June 27th[RAIN DATE: JULY 18TH]

To help alleviate parking concerns for the Monday, June 27th showing of “STAR WARS – The Force Awakens,” we will provide a shuttle bus service via the Town’s HART Bus from the Huntington train station “north” commuter parking lot to Heckscher Park. “In years past, we have utilized HART Bus for our drive-ins, but we anticipate a large turnout for Star Wars and it is my hope that that the shuttle service will help in this effort,” stated Councilman Cuthbertson.

All movies begin at darkness (between 8:30-9:00 pm). It is suggested that you pack lawn chairs, including the drive-in performances, in the event the drive-in lot fills early. Overflow parking is available and bus service brings people and their belongings to the beach. In the event of inclement weather on the “Rain Date,” the movie will be held indoors at the ELWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL auditorium, 478 Elwood Road, Elwood and begin at 7:30 pm.

For information on performances, please visit: or call Councilman Mark Cuthbertson at 631-351-3112.
