Scott Community College, one of the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, is inviting everyone to a free movie night this Friday, July 18, at the college, 500 Belmont Road, Bettendorf.

The outdoor show begins at sunset and will be held in the college amphitheater, directly behind the college. Park in front of the college and look for signs directing you to the location. People are welcome to start bringing their chairs and blankets at 7 p.m.

Due to licensing rights, the college isn't allowed to share the name of the movie in a news release, but all of the information including the name is available online at The college can say that the family-friendly movie is the recent sequel to a popular action film.

Concessions will be available and there is plenty of room for people to spread out and have fun. It's ok to bring food and beverages but please leave the alcohol at home.

The movie is just one way in which the college is giving back to the community and it hopes that a lot of people will attend.

In case of bad weather, the show will still go on, moving inside the college. Showtime if it does move inside will be 8:30 p.m.
