Vintage Looney Tunes cartoons will air before the feature film at each screening. Admission is $6 for ages eight and up. Concessions will be for sale.

The Film Series, sponsored by Heritage Real Estate Advisors and the Ellsworth Independent-Reporter newspaper, features the 1956 Oscar-winning film "Picnic," filmed largely in Salina and other Kansas communities. It stars Kim Novak, William Holden and Rosalind Russell in the story of Hal, a handsome drifter who stirs up conflict and romance when he comes to town over Labor Day weekend.
