August - Outdoor Movie Night - "Newsies" (1992)

Join us Friday, August 20th, outside the Sheboygan County Historical Museum for a FREE outdoor movie in front of the 1864 Weinhold Log Cabin. Bring a blanket or chairs, grab some bug spray, and don’t forget the family! You can start setting up your space at 8pm.

Come early! We have chosen this family friendly Disney movie, based on the New York City Newsboys strike of 1899, in honor of “The Way We Worked” Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit that is on display at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum July 17 – October 9. The Museum will be open starting at 6:30pm free of charge for you to explore this exhibit. And don’t forget to enjoy some old fashioned cartoons out on the lawn before the show starts at dusk (approx. 8:15pm).
