LST 393’s 2017 Friday Night "Movies On Deck"
Sunsets. Sea breezes. Superstars. They’re all on deck at USS LST 393 Veterans Museum for the popular “Movies on Deck” most Friday nights this summer on Muskegon’s downtown waterfront. Now in its 11th year, the free film series continues to thrive because families and businesses have committed to sponsoring individual movies. But the biggest gift of all comes from Waddell & Reed, a downtown Muskegon investment and financial planning firm that is underwriting the entire series again this year.
The films are shown on LST 393’s huge screen on the top deck starting right after sunset, around 10 p.m. In August, films start about 9:30.
The historic warship’s “Movies on Deck” opens June 3 with, “Monuments Men”.
There is no charge to attend “Movies on Deck” screenings, although donations to help support the ship’s restoration and veterans museum are always welcome. Moviegoers should bring their own chairs and weather-appropriate clothing; popcorn, soda and snacks are available for sale.
Inclement weather will mean a move down inside the giant tank deck of the ship for an indoor showing. The museum’s indoor audio-video system has been recently upgraded by Muskegon’s Geeks Inc. If moved inside, the movie will start at 10 p.m.
