Movies on Deck 2023

LST 393’s 2023 Friday Night "Movies On Deck"

Movies on Deck is back for its 17th season, and it will be a blockbuster summer.

The Friday night film series is shown on USS LST 393’s huge screen on the top deck starting right after sunset, around 10 p.m. There is no charge to attend “Movies on Deck” screenings, although donations to help support the restoration and veterans museum are always welcome. Moviegoers should bring their own chairs; popcorn, soda and snacks are available for sale.

The series will kick off with “Top Gun” on June 23. The original Tom Cruise aviation movie features Kelly McGillis and U.S. Navy Tomcat fighters flying eye-popping aerobatics.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" will be screened July 7. The Marvel Studios film is a funny, bright, weird and exciting movie. It's a dazzling spectacle with a talented cast led by Chris Pratt, an awesome soundtrack and great special effects.

The series wraps up Aug. 4 with “The Blues Brothers,” the outrageously hilarious movie that combines chases, crashes, explosions and some of the best musical numbers of the 1980s. It stars John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd.

LST 393 is located at the Mart Dock adjacent to Heritage Landing county park on the downtown Muskegon waterfront. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. seven days a week with the last tour starting at 4. Special guided tours are available and group events can be scheduled by calling 730-1477.
