Sunsets, sea breezes and superstars…they’re all on deck at USS LST 393 Veterans Museum for the popular “Movies on Deck,” most Friday nights this summer on Muskegon’s downtown waterfront. The films are shown on LST 393’s huge screen on the top deck starting right after sunset, around 10:00pm. In August, films start about 9:30pm. There is no charge to attend “Movies on Deck” screenings, although donations to help support the ship’s restoration and veterans museum are always welcome. Moviegoers should bring their own chairs and weather-appropriate clothing. Popcorn, soda and snacks are available for sale.
Inclement weather will mean a move down inside the giant tank deck of the ship for an indoor showing at 10:00pm.
LST 393 is located at the Mart Dock adjacent to Heritage Landing county park on the downtown Muskegon waterfront. Tour hours are 10:00am – 5:00pm seven days a week with the last tour starting at 4:00pm. For more information, call 231-730-1477 or visit www.lst393.org.
The viewers of this summer’s Movies on Deck film series have chosen “Young Frankenstein” as the final movie of the summer. The Mel Brooks masterpiece will be shown Friday, August 18. There is no admission charge; viewers should bring their own chairs, concessions are sold.
