Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

When: Fri., June 2, 8 p.m. 2017

Watching movies outdoors on a big screen once the sun goes down is one of life's relatively simple joys, and Cary's Movies By Moonlight series remains a perennial crowd-pleaser by providing people with that increasingly rare experience. This year's lineup kicks off with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first stand-alone film drawn from George Lucas's cultural juggernaut. Felicity Jones stars as Jyn, a soldier and former criminal who leads a ragtag but ready resistance in a race against time to exploit a pivotal weakness in the Death Star. All the intergalactic thrills we've come to expect are here, and the fresh cast is unburdened by plot strictures and audience expectations. While in past seasons, the series lineup has offered nods to the grown-up set, the current focus is firmly on ultra-child-centric fare, with La La Land the only other entry in this summer's roster devoid of animated animals. But for the young and young at heart, this is a no-brainer for a fun night out. Bring a blanket or a chair, and be entertained —David Klein
