Friendship blossoms between two dogs as they find their way back home; a ragtag team of misfits sidesteps authority to save the galaxy; three women combat prejudice and adversity to reach the stars; a group of local animals find their voice.
These hit films, The Secret Life of Pets, Rogue One, Hidden Figures, and Sing, make up the 2017 program for Rochester’s annual Movies in the Moonlight. The event, which runs for four consecutive Saturdays, beginning July 15th, is an opportunity for the community to come together and enjoy movies that inspire, entertain, and provoke thought in viewers of all ages.
Community movie nights are a summer staple across Oakland County: from Southfield’s Movie Under the Stars at the Municipal Complex to Movie Nights in Milford’s Central Park. With so many movies and community settings to choose from, there’s something great for everyone.

The pop of the gun sends hundreds or even thousands of runners and walkers of all ages into the street. As foot meets pavement, racers journey toward the finish line.
While participants compete for health and sport, most also compete to draw awareness and support to a wide range of charitable causes.

Avid and amateur runners to summer walkers are invited to put their feet to the pavement and run (or walk) any number of the races scheduled during the summer months. Use our Summer Running List to find a race near you!
