Music & Movies at Third series kicks off in Carbondale

Bike in, drive in, bring a lounge chair, blanket and costumes and check out the town of Carbondale’s newest ‘fun ticket.” This summer CCAH, Third Street Center and the town are hosting a Music and Movies at Third series once a month on Sunday evenings. The series takes place at the Third Street Center Park, right behind the Third Street Center, with spacious swaths of grass, a big screen and sweet music. Each evening will kick off with live music beginning at 7 p.m. and will follow with a movie beginning at dusk. Each event includes a movie-themed contest as well.

Music and Movies at Third begins on Sunday, June 22, with musicians Hymn for Her and the ’80s classic “The Princess Bride.” Hymn for Her injects juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock that has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish.” An award for most original princess costume will be given at 8:30 p.m.

The second event of the series, on July 20, will begin with Paonia’s The Strolling Scones followed by the movie “Yellow Submarine.” The Scones are known for their serious grooves, tight harmonies, flashy guitar work and wonderfully catchy original songs. Don’t miss this opportunity to dig your bell bottoms out of the closet. An award for best ’60s garb will be given at 8:30 p.m.

The series concludes on Aug. 17 with our very own local musicians, Ananda and Chris Bank, followed by “Singing In The Rain.” Ananda and Chris never disappoint. These two will be singing classic jazz and shimmy shack standards from the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. At 8:30 p.m. there will be a Fred Astaire dance moves contest.
