Coming Soon to the Brown Street Lawn: Bache Martin’s Annual Movie Night!

On Friday, October 20th, Bache Martin’s Home and School Association will be hosting a movie night on the Brown Street lawn behind the Eastern State Penitentiary. The gathering will begin at 6:00pm, with free snacks and beer from Bar Hygge available for purchase. We’ll show It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown at dusk for our littlest viewers, and then continue with our feature film - Inside Out selected by our Student Council. Movie night is open to our entire community. The event is free but donations are welcome with net proceeds going to support our middle school sports programs. Rain date is Nov. 3.

Come out and support Bache Martin!
