The Kent Historical Society, the Hills Film Festival, and the Kent Memorial Library are co-sponsoring an outdoor showing of the movie "Back to the Future II," Saturday, August 29 at 8:30 p.m. on the Kent Town Hall rear lawn. This is free admission thanks to generous sponsors.
This is an anniversary year for the show. The movie, starring Michael J. Fox, was originally set in 1985 and jumped to the future of 2015. As this is the final weekend before children in Region 1 head back to school, the organizations are hoping that everyone will celebrate the end of summer with this event. The Kent Historical Society's exhibition theme this year is "Camps of Kent; Memories of Summer. "
This movie is a perfect activity that is reminiscent of a camp event and the sponsors hope it will lay down new memories of summer for all of the visitors and residents of Kent.
