The Outdoor Summer Series, which will be "safe, outdoor, socially distanced movie screenings," are being underwritten by BLB&B Advisors Inc. in Montgomeryville, PA.
The first event will be this Saturday at 8:45pm and will feature the cult classic, The Goonies.
The Goonies, directed by Richard Donner, based on a story by Steven Spielberg was released in 1985.
