The Montclair Film Festival's free family film summer screening series, dubbed Cinema Montclairismo, resumes on Friday night with a showing of Big on Church Street.
In its third year, the series brings the community of Montclair together for various evenings of great films under the stars. MFF and the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs co-sponsored the first film, a special sing-a-long screening of Grease that took place a few weeks ago at the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens.
“MFF is not only committed to organizing and sponsoring a great film festival, but also to creating free family events throughout the year that bring the community together,” stated Lisa Ingersoll, Co-Chair of Cinema Montclairismo.
So grab a lawn chair and come out to hear music by Sock Monster at 8 p.m. and then stay for the film at 9 p.m. on Friday.
