Dinner + A Movie on the Lawn: Storks

Hot dogs, and smoothies, and crepes, oh my!

On Thursday, May 25 from 7:30–11 PM on the Library Lawn, Downtown Lawrence Inc. and Lawrence Public Library invite you to eat some grub, listen to some music, and watch a movie. Grab dinner from local vendors at 7:30, settle in for some local music from the Beer Bellies, then at 9, we’ll push play!

We’ll watch Storks, eat popcorn, drink beer and sodas, and settle in for a lovely evening with friends and neighbors. See you there!

    I’m not trying to be rude but why are you starting a movie that is aimed at young kids at 9 at night. Most kids that would be interested in this movie will either be extremely tired or asleep by 9 p.m. at night. I have a 7 year old and a 4 year old and both of them would be asleep within 30 minutes or an hour. Not to mention that the movie would not even be over until 10:30ish. Parents and kids have to get up on Friday to go to work and daycare. Could you reconsider the start time? I think if you started it even an hour earlier, it would still better than 9 p.m.

      Hi, Dena. Great question—not rude at all. Since the movies are outside on the lawn, we have to start them when the sun goes down, otherwise it’s too bright out to see the screen. The next one is July 26 — a Friday — so, hopefully that will make it easier to attend. As this is actually a Downtown Lawrence event that we partner with, we suggest emailing questions to them directly: Hope that helps.
