Revisit the beginning of the other Beetlemania
The Museum Center at Five Points concludes their monthlong "Movies In The Courtyard" with another family-friendly classic.
"The Love Bug" tells the tale of a lovable Volkswagen Beetle with a mind of its own. A rather emotionally unstable mind, at that. The Beetle, known affectionately as "Herbie" teams up with a down-on-his-luck race car driver and they find themselves on the bumpy and hilarious road to success and romance.
The film, one in a very successful series of live-action kid comedies produced by Walt Disney Studios in the '60s and '70s, starred Disney stalwart Dean Jones, along with Michele Lee and the legendary Buddy Hackett.
Amusingly, the film won a Golden Screen award in Germany in 1970.
Bring your family, friends, blankets, lawn chairs, and snacks to enjoy the movie in the museum's outdoor Courtyard. The movie will begin a dusk (around 7:30 p.m.)
