Eastlake Movie Night shows ‘Wizard of Oz’ on Saturday

The annual Eastlake Movie Night returns this coming Saturday, Aug. 13, at 7:30 p.m. on the Rogers Playfield, 2500 Franklin Ave. E.

This year’s movie under the stars will be “The Wizard of Oz.” Activities begin at 7:30 p.m. and the movie starts about 9 p.m. You’re encouraged to bring your picnic or you’ill be able to order takeout from one or more local restaurants at the event. Also, be sure to bring lawn chairs to sit on, jackets and blankets.

This is always a fun event and a great chance to enjoy a classic movie with your neighbors.

Eastlake Movie Night is sponsored by the Eastlake Community Council, the Washington State Employees Union, Live Oak Audio Visual, G&H Printing and National Frozen Foods. Admission is free but they’ll be passing the hat for donations to help pay for the event. 

The Eastlake picnic that was scheduled for next week has been combined with this event.
