A humorous look behind the scenes of a national morning news show is the subject of July’s Movies under the Stars. The 2010 film “Morning Glory” will be the next feature film in the summer series on Saturday, July 9th beginning at 9:00pm.

“This is turning out to be one of our best summers ever for this free movie series,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15). “The Iroquois Amphitheater is a great place to see a film and it is also a great way to spend a Saturday night in July.”

The film stars Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton as the executive producer and co hosts of a struggling national morning show.

The Movies under the Stars is free to everyone and funded by members of the Metro Council. Joining Butler as sponsors are David James (D-6), Rick Blackwell (D-12), Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13), Bob Henderson (D-14) Dan Johnson (D-21), Jim King (D-10), Mary C. Woolridge (D-3), David Yates (D-25), Jon Ackerson (R-18), Robin Engel (R-22) and Brent Ackerson (D-26).

While there is no admission for the film, concessions will be available.

“We have had very good turnout for the series so far this year,” says Butler. “If you have not been to Iroquois Park in awhile here is the perfect reason to come out and have some fun with the family.”
