The South Street Headhouse District are now showing free outdoor movies every Wednesday night this summer in an effort in part to promote area businesses.
On Wednesday, June 24, it's Grease. It was being shown under the historic shambles near 2nd and Lombard Streets. It was free and a BYOC, according to Rakia Reynolds, spokeswoman for the South Street Headhouse District:
"So its a BYOC. You bring your own chair and enjoy some summer block busters, some oldies but goodies, and fun family musicals. So bring everybody out to enjoy the outdoor screenings."
Reynolds says each screening is sponsored by a district business and that business is promoted that evening . Employees of fifties-themed Johnnie Rockets restaurant were expected to entertain the crown with dances and have giveaways before the Grease screening.
