The Page Turners WORLD PREMIERE & Holes on Our Outdoor Movie Screen TONIGHT!

We’ve got your Saturday night plans covered! If you already have plans, CANCEL THEM and head to HCPL’s Sugar Creek Branch lawn for two free outdoor movies + popcorn.

Tonight we’ll be showing the world premiere of The Page Turners, a hilarious short film that takes a look at what happens when readers get sucked into a good book—literally. This movie has been written, directed, acted by, and edited by your Hancock County peers. Support your local arts and talent!

After you enjoy The Page Turners, we’ll be showing the movie Holes, based on the Louis Sachar‘s novel.


It’s a beautiful night for an outdoor movie night!!! Movies will start when it gets dark. See you on the lawn!
