One of my favorite summer series – PlayhouseSquare’s Cinema at the Square – starts up tonight with King Kong. As much I enjoy spending the warm-weather months outdoors, sometimes I like escaping into the air conditioning, curling up in a theatre seat and getting engrossed in a movie. And when it’s a classic film — even better!
This year’s lineup, which runs until August 21, has a nice mix of older films like King Kong, Grand Hotel and Charade, as well as “new classics” like a special double feature of Batman and Batman Returns, Superman and Muppet Treasure Island.
The one I’m most looking forward to, though, is Jaws on August 18. In addition to seeing a movie that always has me on the edge of my seat, I’m also excited because it’s Young Professionals Night at the Cinema.
Starting at 6pm, PlayhouseSquare Partners is hosting a free pre-movie party for young professionals in the Ohio Theatre. There will be drinks, movie theater snacks, and networking. Plus, all of the Partners committees will have info about this year’s Calendar of Events.
One of the evening’s announcements is going to be … (wait for it!)
… the theme of the 21st annual Jump Back Ball!
I had such a fantastic time at last year’s Jump Back Ball that I can’t wait to share this year’s theme with everyone.
You don’t have to be a Partner to attend. And, if you join PlayhouseSquare Partners the night of the event, you can get 20% off your membership. So a $100 Mezzanine membership for two will cost only $80.
In fact, you’ll save twice if you plan on attending Jump Back Ball, because one of the (many) benefits of a Partners membership is a discount to JBB. I was never a fan of math – except when it helps me save money like this.
Admission for YP Night at the Cinema is free, but tickets are required. You can get a free ticket to YP Night at the Cinema by calling 216-771-4444 x3247 or clicking here to register online.
When you’re at the party, be sure to stop by the Jump Back Ball table, say hi to me and learn more about what our committee is going to be up to this year. Then, at 7:30 p.m., you can wander over to the Palace and hear me yelp in fright when I watch Jaws on the big screen for the first time.
