CHELSEA – Families looking for two hours of wholesome entertainment this summer can attend a new weekly movie event in Chelsea.

Library Movie Day at the Chelsea Community Center will be held each Tuesday starting June 7 through July 26 from 1-3 p.m.

Summer movies will kick off with “Woodlawn,” a 2015 film based on a true story about high school football player Tony Nathan as he joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School following its government-mandated desegregation in 1973.

Popcorn will be provided, but attendees can bring lunch.

Library Movie Day will feature a mix of new releases and classics. Some of the movies will go along with the sports-related summer reading theme, and some will be just for fun.

All movies will be family appropriate.
