Each summer, the Lion’s Club and Ruby Cinemas partner with area businesses to provide free summer program of entertainment to families in the community. The program kicked off on Tuesday morning and will run every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning at 10 a.m. through Aug. 16.
The film festival is free to all children under the age of 16 and for those over 16, admission is only $1. Donations are also accepted during the film festival, which helps to fund the program and other Lion’s Club programs.
Some of the movies on the list for this year include Smurfs, Rio, Hotel Transylvania 2, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 1 and 2, and Home.
The Lion’s Club is a worldwide charitable society devoted to social and international service. Locally, the Lion’s Club provides scholarships for students as well as projects devoted to vision screenings in Macon County Schools. The club purchases eye glasses and pays for eye exams for qualified applicants. The Summer Film Festival is just one of the ways the club raises funds for its annual projects.
