In order, the following movies will play weekly: The Pursuit of Happyness, Matilda, Coco, Madagascar, Mamma Mia and Clueless. The final movie, Sept. 23, will be a surprise.

Movies will begin at dusk, typically after 8:30 p.m. for the mid-August showings and closer to 8 p.m. from late-August through September.
