TAVARES — Long before the slapstick comedy of Adam Sandler graced the remake of The Longest Yard, the young comedian filmed another football-themed flick full of comedic hijinks right here in Lake County.
The third movie on the slate of “Movies at the Museum” will begin at 2 p.m. Monday, June 6, with the showing of The Waterboy in the Lake County Commission Chambers, located on the second floor of the Lake County Administration Building, 315 W. Main St.
This is the second summer in a row Dr. Diane Kamp, Director of Lake County museums, has organized the “Movies at the Museum” program. Accompanying the movie showings is a new exhibit at the museum that is dedicated to the movies and television shows filmed in Lake County.
Of the 20 movies known to be filmed in Lake County, “Movies at the Museum” will be showing seven of them over the course of the summer, including Monday’s presentation.
Each movie presentation in the “Movies at the Museum” program will be shown at 2 p.m. on Mondays. Seating is limited to the first 250 attendees.
The remaining schedule for the free summer series of “Movies at the Museum” is as follows:
- June 6 — The Waterboy (1998)
- June 20 — Olive Juice (2001)
- July 11 — Cool Hand Luke (1967)
- July 25 — My Girl (1991)
- Aug. 22 — Jeepers, Creepers (2001)
