The hot and sweaty summer is upon us! If this last week's weather has you dreaming of cool, indoor destinations, this week offers a range of fun, free (or nearly free) family movies at venues as disparate as the Cinemark Theater in Enfield, the Bridgeport Library, and the Fairfield Library. If the force is with you and you want to be outdoors, check out Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is playing at the Grassy Strip Film Festival outside the Madison Beach Hotel on Tuesday, and then follow that up with your own adventures in outer space at the Star Party at the White Memorial Conservation Center on Friday.
Harry Potter fans in your house are probably eagerly counting down to the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the end of the month. Be sure to register for release parties in Westport, Norwalk, and Fairfield before they fill up. As always, the Event Calendar is continually updated with events for wizards and Muggles alike so check back often and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to be sure you don't miss a thing.
