The monthly downtown event known as Mugs ‘N’ Movies is set for Saturday.

This month’s film will be “Steamboy”, an animated movie released in 2004. It is the story of a boy inventor who finds himself caught in the middle of a deadly conflict over a revolutionary advance in steam power in 1860s Britain.

The film will be shown on a full-size, theater-style screen on 3rd Street. It will be set up in front of Triple George Grill and MOB Bar. Parking is available at the Ogden Garage, which is off Ogden Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets. The movie will start at 8 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. There will be drink specials, a raffle and popcorn.  Guests are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets or whatever to be comfortable during the movie.
