Every Monday in the month of August, local hearing center Precision Hearing will be sponsoring an afternoon matinee of a classic film from the 1960s at The Electric Theater. Located in the heart of historic downtown St. George at 68 E. Tabernacle St., the event is a fun way to spend an afternoon and take a walk down memory lane to a time before summer movies were full of superhero blockbusters, remakes and sequels. Doors open at 1 p.m. with the movie starting 30 minutes later, and the best part is that the weekly event is FREE to the public! Below is the schedule of movies for August:
August 7: Bullitt (1968)
