Cinema On Sage

For the last three summers, our town has been hosting a really great program.  It's called Cinema On Sage.  They put up a 40 foot screen in the middle of Sage Street just in front of the Historic Courthouse and show movies under the stars.  It's a great family movie night out!

We really love them!  They usually have games or other types of fun activites before it gets dark enough for the movie to start.

Last week we headed downtown to watch "Cloudy with the Chance of Meatballs".  None of us had seen the movie, so we were all looking forward to it especially since Knox begged to have spegatti before we went!

It had been hot all day.  Then, as it was time to go, the sky looked like it was going to be a problem.  So we started watching the radar real close!  It started to sprinkle, but the storm we were tracking on radar just brushed by!

The decision was made to start the movie because it looked like we could get the movie in before any more storms came.  There was a good size crowd, not as large as they usually are...the rain kind of scared off some folks.  So they started the movie.

Every thing looked great until we started to get to the end of the movie.  We started seeing lightning.  At first we thought it was cloud to cloud heat lightning, but it soon became apparent that it was another storm.  And when we pulled out the radar, we saw that we weren't going to be able to see the end of the movie!

So just before the ending, they stopped the movie and asked everybody to head home before the storm got any worse!

Now my family and I are hopelessly hung out on a limb!  We are ready to see the ending of "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs".  We'll just have to rent it!

Well the rain didn't keep us from having a great time downtown and we can't wait to enjoy the next Cinema on Sage!


  1. Reminds me of the old drive-ins... we had the same problem with the weather but could usually figure out something to do while the rain passed by... that's easy to do with no small children... come visit when you can...
