Monarch Theatre Presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The Monarch Theatre is showing the fourth film of their summer series “Films Al Fresco” on Saturday, August 1, 2009 at 9:00PM at the Kin Coulee Park Band Shell.

Midsummer Nights Dream

Midsummer Night's Dream

Our movie this evening will be “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (1999) starring Christian Bale, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kevin Kline, Rupert Everett, Stanley Tucci, Calista Flockhart, Anna Friel, Daniel Strathairn, Dominic West, Sophie Marceau, and Sam Rockwell.

This adaptation of Shakespeare’s magical comedy of a love-tangled summer’s evening shimmers with sumptuous cinematography and a truly stellar ensemble cast. Set in the Tuscan countryside, the film follows the romantic misadventures of four lovers who wander into the forest and are magically bewitched by the creatures living there. This cheerful romp is a feast for the senses set to a magnificent classical score and is the perfect entertainment for a languid midsummer’s evening. The movie is rated PG for mild sensuality.

People are reminded to bring a blanket or lawn chairs, as there is no fixed seating available in the park. Come early to get the best spot!

As with all of the films in the “Films Al Fresco” series, this event is being held as a fundraiser for the Monarch Theatre Revitalization Project, and admission is by donation. The suggested donation is $5.00. Concessions (pop, Monarch popcorn, chips, candy, chocolate bars) will be available for sale on site, and all proceeds will benefit theMonarch Theatre.
