WINCHENDON — If you’re looking for a fun night out with the whole family, then head over to the Beals Memorial Library for their final Outdoor Movie and Music Night of the summer. On Friday, Aug. 20, the library will be screening the action-packed dinosaur film, Jurassic Park.

Before the movie, Jumpin’ Juba kicks off the night at 7 p.m. with a unique, rootsy-bluesy brand of music inspired by New Orleans swamp rock, classic boogie-woogie, folk, Memphis rock & roll, and a playful use of everything from calypso to country.

At dark, the library will be screening the 1993 classic, Jurassic Park. The film is directed by Steven Spielberg and is set on the fictional island of Isla Nublar. There, wealthy businessman John Hammond and a team of scientists have created a wildlife park of de-extinct dinosaurs. When industrial sabotage leads to a catastrophic shutdown of the park’s power facilities and security precautions, a small group of visitors and Hammond’s grandchildren struggle to survive and escape the perilous island. The film stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum.

From 6 to 8 p.m., the Friends of the Library will be running both their book sale and a concession stand. There will be popcorn, cookies and other treats available for purchase. Profits go to fund future library programs and events.

Summer movies at the library are held outdoors on the library lawn and are free to attend. Bring your own lawn chairs or a picnic blanket for seating. Please note that movies will start when it gets dark and in the event of rain, the movie will be held on Thursday of the following week.

The Beals Memorial Library is located at 50 Pleasant St. For more information, call the library at 978-297-0300 or email at
