Capitol takes a day off for movie

Amanda Narverud / Washburn Review

Enjoy a movie on the statehouse lawn at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 13. “Ferris Beuler’s Day Off” will be shown on the south side of the statehouse.

Attendees are encouraged to bring friends and blankets to enjoy the movie. The Capitol discourages lawn chairs on the grass, but they are welcome on the sidewalk. Picnics are also welcome, alcohol, however, is not, and vending stands will be available including, SodaWorks with vintage soda and Hot Rod Hot Dogs and more.

The 1986 film is about a high school wise guy that is determined to have a day off from school, despite of what the principal thinks of it.

Movie on the Lawn is part of Top City Thursdays and is presented by Downtown Topeka, Inc., Matthew W. Gassen, Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library and seveneightfive magazine.

The 1978 classic “Grease” will also be shown during the Movie on the Lawn series, Thursday, Sept. 27.

Due to projected rain and high winds on Thursday, September 13th, Movie on the Lawn “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” has been moved to October 4th. Same time and location. Mark your calendars for September 27th for “Grease.”
