The Stilwell Summer Film series was developed in May 2009 when Elizabeth Tiller (a big fan of outdoor movie experiences) decided she didn’t want to spend money on gas to travel to the outdoor screenings at Crown Center or the drive-in movie theater on the north side of Kansas City. Thus she created her own outdoor cinema.
Stilwell Film’s mission is to provide free entertainment to the communities of southern Johnson County and northern Miami County, as well as diversity through the films it screens. At dusk, we begin with a popular film or recent blockbuster, then follow it with a classic, foreign, or lesser known film. By attending the Stilwell Summer Film series, not only do you save your pocket money, but the environment when you choose not to travel downtown Kansas City.
The Stilwell Summer Film series will be returning to the south side of Stilwell United Methodist Church in July 2011. If you would like to get involved, contact Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
