Movie Gang

The Movie Gang, Williamson County's cinematic event group, will make its grand return to The Franklin Theatre in July. 

After running into some friction with the Heritage Foundation, which oversees the theater, late in 2019, the two sides seem to have put it behind them for the event series to return to its original home. 

The Movie Gang has not hosted an event at the theater since April 2019 when John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China screened.

The comeback selection is Robert Zemeckis' 1985 classic Back to the Future, which will screen July 3 at 7 p.m. 

The Movie Gang promises pre-screening movie trivia and an "80s Enchantment Under the Sea Dance," inspired by the high school dance seen in the film. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with the pre-film festivities. 

Tickets are on sale now at both the Movie Gang's website and the theater's
