The team at the Auburn Recreation Department will present music, movies, and other summer fun for 2021.

“There really is something for everyone,” said Recreation Director Sabrina Best in a news release. “Our team has done a great job planning and organizing programs and events for this summer that capture our traditional offerings while adding some fun new ones. Our approach was all about balance and options.”

The city invites residents to this year’s Summer Movie Series, which will kick off Friday, June 11. The series, which will run through October, will feature seven popular movies. Each will take place at a different location throughout the city, and two will be drive-in style. Movies will begin near dusk — as soon as it is dark enough outside. They will be shown on the city’s new 17-foot by 30-foot inflatable movie screen.

Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets and snacks to enjoy.

The movie lineup will include:

• Friday, June 11 — “Grease” will be shown in Anniversary Park at 8:45 p.m.

• Friday, July 16 — “Angels in the Outfield” at Pettengill Softball Field at 8:45 p.m.

• Friday, July 30 — “Mighty Ducks” will be shown as a drive-in at the parking lot at Norway Savings Bank Arena at 8:45 p.m.

• Friday, Aug. 13 — “Aquaman” at Lake Grove Park (PG-13) at 8:45 p.m.

• Thursday, Sept. 16: “Tom and Jerry” at Chestnut Park (near PAL) between 7 and 8 p.m.

• Saturday, Oct. 30: Drive-in at Great Falls Plaza (registration is required) “Monsters, Inc.” at 6 p.m. and “Hocus Pocus” at 8 p.m.

In addition to the Summer Movie Series, the city is proud to present its new Anniversary Park Acoustic Music Series, which will feature live music in Auburn’s Anniversary Park. The music series will kick off on June 29 and will feature the following local musicians:

• June 29 — The Mike & Brian Duo at 6 p.m.

• July 13 — The Smith Collaboration at 6 p.m.

• July 20 — Double Entendre at 6 p.m.

• July 27 — Michael Krapovicky and open mic at 6 p.m. Interested musicians should call Auburn Recreation for details at 333-6611.

Lastly, a true summer favorite is back this year: Auburn’s beloved Community Band! After cancelling last year’s season, the band will be back on Festival Plaza on Main Street each Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. starting on July 7 through Aug. 25. “The Community Band is such a special part of summer in Auburn,” said Best. “We will be so glad when they’re back in Festival Plaza where they belong!”
