July 21 – Trolls - Rated PG:

From the creators of Shrek comes a smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy, DreamWorks' Trolls. Enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.

July 28 – The Boss Baby - Rated PG:

Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always been a boy of an overactive imagination, and for the past seven years, life was all peaches for him, getting all the love and affection from his caring parents. However, life will never be the same and Tim won't be the center of attention anymore as the arrival of an improbable new brother named Boss Baby, dressed in a black suit complete with a tie and a briefcase, will shortly rob him of all love, as he takes over the whole Templetons' house.

Families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy an evening of family entertainment under the stars. A call to 908-722-1200, ext. 351 will provide weather updates during the evening prior to the show.
