All right, I'm cheating a little bit, because this isn't technically an educational opportunity. But the IMA Summer Nights Film Series is one of my favorite things about Indianapolis -- a yummy picnic, a great movie, a beautiful setting. What more could you want from a Friday night?
The 2009 schedule is now posted, and it's a good one. The series starts June 5 with "The Bourne Identity" and ends Aug. 28 with "High Fidelity." Other films on the schedule include "Roman Holiday," "Plan 9 from Outer Space," "The Goonies," "Fight Club" and "Dazed and Confused."
Doors open at 6 p.m., and the movies begin at dusk. It's not uncommon for these movies to sell out, so come earlier rather than later. Tickets are $5 for IMA members and $9 for the general public.
