The Plaza Theatre in Downtown Garland is hosting two free movies at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 and 6.
The Friday night movie is "American Graffiti," the story of a couple of high school graduates who spend one final night cruising the strip with their buddies before they go off to college. This 1973 Academy Award winner was written and directed by George Lucas and glitters with stars such as Richard Dryfuss, Ron Howard, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, and Suzanne Somers.
On Saturday evening, enjoy the hilarious "Cat Ballou," starring Jane Fonda, Lee Marvin, and Michael Callan. This western comedy is the story of a woman seeking revenge for her murdered father who hires a famous gunman, but he's very different from what she expects.
Admission for both movies is free. Popcorn, soda and candy are available for $2 each with all profits going to support the Garland Summer Musicals. The Plaza Theatre is located at 521 W. State St. in Downtown Garland. For more information, call 972-205-2782 or visit www.GarlandArts.com.
