Every summer Iroquois Ampitheater opens to the public for one night a month and hosts "Movie Under The Stars", where they play great movies on their giant screen at literally no cost. Movie Description: In 1962, Tony "Tony Lip" Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work when his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states. Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals. However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America's appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other's talents and start to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives. Additional Information: • Guest Count: Unlimited • Movie Starts at 8:30 PM but meeting in front at 8:00 to grab seating and get settled. • Parking is free! • Concessions are available ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to ask. I hope to see you all there! Helen W.
