Lynn Memorial Auditorium, as part of an on-going effort to increase programming by the city, will soon be offering $3 movie nights in the auditorium, beginning with a Saturday, November 16 airing of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey beginning at 8 p.m.
Some of the other movies that will soon get their Lynn debut include, “The Dead Poet’s Society,” “Life is Beautiful,” “The Shawshank Redemption,” “Scarface,” and “The Deer Hunter.”
Community Development Director Jamie Marsh explained that the movie nights, will be shown during breaks in concert schedules as a way of filling out the calendar and opening the Auditorium as much as possible. As a result, no additional movie dates or times have been released as yet.
Meanwhile, the concert and live performance schedule at Memorial Auditorium continues to grow upcoming shows include the October 30 performance by The Amazing Kreskin and the November 23 concert by Tedeschi Trucks Band and the December 9 Celtic Woman performance.
When Memorial Auditorium was originally re-opened as public performance venue, movie nights were among the first programming used.
The announced line up of movie makes it clear that the city is not necessarily marketing the movie nights as family events, as movies like Scarface and The Deer Hunter are not appropriate for younger audiences.
