Streaming: If you didn’t already know, Sister Sister is now streaming on Netflix! What a throwback with Tia and Tamera Mowry. Magic Mike and the entire Back to the Future series are now available as well. If you want to induldge in guilty pleasures stream the complete Twilight saga, it’s now available on Hulu. Also, have you heard of Tubi? It’s a new free streaming service. The name keeps popping up so it may be worth checking out!

Things to Do:

Stage: Our friends at the Springfield Little Theatre are hosting a socially distanced performance of Forbidden Broadway’s Greatest Hits. You can join them at the theater or there’s a streaming option at SpringfieldLittleTheatre.org. They’ll also be doing small-group ghost tours of the Landers Theaters coming up in October.

In Carthage it’s a double feature of Smokey and the Bandit and Field of Dreams. Rumor has it some of the cast will be there, and the car too, to take pictures with!
