The rain date for each movie is the following Wednesday.

Beginning at 7:30 PM on movie night, the Mansfield Downtown Partnership and Mansfield Advocates for Children will host fun, free activities and games themed for each movie. The Partnership will also offer fresh-popped popcorn for sale, while the Mansfield Fire Department will have cold water for sale. The Ballard Insititute & Museum of Puppetry will have extended hours (open until 8:00 PM), offering a perfect chance to check out their latest exhibits. And, last but not least, the UConn Dairy Bar Truck will be stationed near Betsy Paterson Square with everyone's favorite ice cream for sale!
