On Saturday, June 10, Old Town Winchester opens its summer Classic Movie Night in downtown Winchester with the beloved 1973 film, “American Graffiti” at dusk (approximately 8:30 p.m.) at the Taylor Pavilion. Considered as one of the top 100 American films of all time, this George Lucas feature stars Richard Dreyfuss, Harrison Ford and Ron Howard as high school graduates about to enter the problematic world of the early ‘60s and includes some of the era’s most memorable music.

In case of rain, the showing will move to the nearby Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, 28 W. Boscawen Street.
