Saturday, Sept. 21, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – Classic 1986 film where a high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite of what the principal thinks of that.

Saturday, Sept. 28, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - When Dr. Henry Jones Sr. suddenly goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, eminent archaeologist Indiana Jones must follow in his father's footsteps and stop the Nazis.

"River City Company is so excited to turn Center Park into a movie theater once again,” states Tiffanie Robinson, director of Creative Strategies for River City Company. “It’s a chance for us to bring people to City Center, show them some of the cool things that are happening here and have fun while we are doing it.”
