Jules Showing by Boonton Recreation Department
We will be screening “Jules” the movie at Boonton Town Hall where the movie was filmed. This will be outdoors in the parking lot, so bring your chairs and snacks and spend an evening with the community watching our small town on the big screen. It won’t be dark enough that early??? No worries ……we are bringing in an LED screen so it can still be light out and we will be able to see crystal clear.
The movie is free to attend and reservations are not required.
