Patriotic films to show over holiday weekend in The Villages

The Movie Theatres at The Villages implements safety protocols to ensure safe viewing

THE VILLAGES, Fla. – In honor of our Nation’s 244th anniversary, The Movie Theatres At The Villages have programmed some very powerful patriotic content to be shown on the big screen through Sunday.

In order to ensure the safe viewing of these films, Risk Manager Alex Mills told News 6 all staff members will be wearing masks, and he demonstrated the protocol in place to ensure social distancing in the auditorium.

He also spoke about the involved cleaning and disinfecting the procedures the staff is following, as well as the ongoing fumigation of the spaces.

To sing in the Fourth of July in style, both the Old Mill Playhouse and The Barnstorm Theatre welcome the theatrical premiere of “National Anthem Girl”, a new documentary about gratitude and The Nation Anthem. Janine Stang, aka The National Anthem Girl, commits herself to a goal of singing our Nation’s most sacred songs in all 50 states.

Janine herself will be introducing the film in person via Skype Friday night at the 7 p.m. show at the Old Mill Playhouse and at the 7 p.m. show on Saturday night at The Barnstorm Theatre.

Also included in the showings are “The Outpost”, based on the novel, “The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor”, by Jake Tapper and US Army Chaplain Justin Roberts’ film “No Greater Love” for a fifth anniversary encore week booking.

“No Greater Love” explores Chaplain Roberts’ deployment as he and his men fight through a hellish tour in one of the most dangerous places in Afghanistan.
