Northport, NY - July 18, 2016 - This year is the thirteenth season of the Movies on the Lawn program hosted by Councilman Mark Cuthbertson, the Town of Huntington – and major sponsor Huntington Honda. This year’s lineup will have something for everyone to enjoy.

"This is great family entertainment. Pack up your picnic supper, blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy this summer's movie line-up,” said Cuthbertson. "With every passing year, the crowd of movie-goers multiplies so it's wise to arrive at each venue a little early. We plan to have some fun things to see and do before each show. Our thanks to Main Sponsor, Huntington Honda and Sparkling Ice, the Mercurio Basketball Camp, Jonathan’s Ristorante of Huntington Village and LaCasa Café at Crab Meadow Beach for co-sponsoring this year’s line-up.”
