Our bar and concessions will be open after the movie as well, so you’ll be able to enjoy a drink and snacks as you get footloose dancing in the street!


Big-city teenager Ren relocates from Chicago to the small rural town of Bomont, where its inhabitants have imposed an unjust ban on Rock 'n' Roll and dancing. Feeling trapped and confused, Ren tries to fit in; however, he will soon find himself neck-deep in trouble when beautiful Ariel Moore, the preacher's daughter, catches his eye. Now, to convince the city council to lift the ban on dancing, Ren has no choice but to fight prejudice and the community's fire-and-brimstone preacher through dance. But is Ren fighting a losing battle? Footloose stars Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker, John Lithgow, Lori Singer, and Dianne Wiest.
