Outdoor movies mark the start of summer

by: COURTESY PHOTO - Indiana Jones and other classics will play at McMenamins Grand Lodge throughout the summer. A Forest Grove summer tradition is back. Pack up the family and head to McMenamins Grand Lodge, 3505 Pacific Ave. in Forest Grove, for outdoor film screenings Friday and Saturday nights throughout the summer starting at dusk.

Bring lawn chairs and blankets. Food will be for sale at Pat’s Corner.

The screenings kick off this Friday, June 20, with a true classic — “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” rated PG. Set in 1935, professor, archaeologist and legendary hero Indiana Jones — played by Harrison Ford — is back in action in his newest adventure. But this time he teams up with a night club singer named Wilhelmina “Willie” Scott and a 12-year-old boy named Short Round. They end up in a small distressed Indian village where the people believe that evil spirits have taken all their children away after a sacred precious stone was stolen.

The film will play June 20, 21 and 26.

The Grand Lodge will screen “Grease,” starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, June 27 and 28, and July 3. The musical about teens in love in the 1950s follows greaser Danny Zuko and Australian Sandy Olsson. They spend time at the beach, but when they go back to school, they both now attend Rydell High. Danny’s the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black-jacket greasers, while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies.

Other classics throughout the summer include “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “The Goonies,” “School of Rock,” “The Brady Bunch Movie” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
