Join me for the Comcast Outdoor Film Festival. This year, it will be my honor to introduce the movie on opening night.

The festival is celebrating its fourteenth anniversary August 13-20, 2010, with eight nights of hit movies that include a mix of box office hits, classics, family favorites. New this year, this annual summer favorite is moving to the grounds of the Universities at Shady Grove.
