Maven and Spy Hop are pleased to share with you a way to have some fun this summer! Gather your covid bubble crew and head to the parking lot behind the Maven District (177 E. 900 S.) to enjoy an outdoor movie screening from your car. This exclusive parking lot screening will combine all the things we love about summer; warm nights, favorite movies, and friends — but all enjoyed while adhering to the health guidelines we all have memorized by heart (social distancing, mask wearing, handwashing). Pack your favorite snacks & beverages, pillows, comfy cushions and make a night of it with us all from your car, truck or SUV.

About School of Rock: After being kicked out of his rock band, guitarist Dewey Finn faces a mountain of debts and depression. He shares an apartment with an old band member, Ned Schneebly, who is now a substitute teacher. Dewey accepts a job as a substitute teacher at a snobbish private elementary school where his attitude and hijinx have a powerful result on his students. He learns they are talented young musicians, and he decides to form a rock band with them to win the $10,000 prize money in a local band contest. Once Dewey wins a competition called “Battle of the Bands”, the prize money would solve his financial problems and put him back in the rock music spotlight. Watch the trailer and learn more about School of Rock.
