Summer at the Movies
As we have in the past, we will show movies on Mondays and Thursdays during the months of July and August. It’s a great time of year to cool off and relax at the Senior Center. On Mondays, we will be showing a smorgasbord of classic movies, documentaries and requests and serving popcorn and cold drinks. On Thursdays, we will treat you to newer hits and pizza. Please call 978-443-3055 to let us know that you are coming to the movie. On Thursdays, the pizza is served at noon ($1.25 a slice) and your pizza order must be in by 10AM.
