Get ready to enjoy three thrilling movies on Fridays this month during “Movies Under the Stars.”
The movies, which feature a homeless teen turned a star athlete, troublesome witches and one “monster’ of a cruise, will kick off Friday, Oct. 12, at Prien Lake Park, 3700 West Prien Lake Road.
Movies and dates:
- October 12: “The Blind Side” (Rated PG-13). This 2009 biographical sports drama, starring Sandra Bullock, Tim McGraw, Kathy Bates, and Quinton Aaron, is based on the 2006 book of the same name. Taken in by a conservative, well-to-do family, a homeless teen, Michael Oher (Aaron), grows to become his adopted high school’s star athlete and projected first-round pick in the NFL draft. His suburban caretakers (Bullock, McGraw) provide him with a loving home and hire a tutor (Bates) to help him improve his grades so he can qualify for a college athletic scholarship.
- October 19: “Hocus Pocus” (Rated PG). In this Halloween classic, three witches (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy), who were executed in Salem 300 years ago, vow to reappear on a future Halloween to wreak havoc on the town - and do whatever is necessary to gain immortality. The witches get their chance on Halloween 1993 when they’re accidentally brought back to life and turn their wrath on trick-or-treaters in order to gain immortal life before sunrise. It's up to a teenager, his girlfriend, his kid sister - and a 300-year-old cat - to save the day.
- October 26: “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” (Computer-animated comedy, Rated PG). Join your favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship. It's smooth sailing for Dracula and his pack as the monsters indulge in all sorts of shipboard fun - monster volleyball, exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans. But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Dracula falls for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all the monsters on the ship.
