Movies Under the Stars continues tonight on Pier A with Ben Afleck’s Academy Award Winner ARGO.  ‘The movie tells the story of 6 American embassy workers who escaped the takeover of the U.S. Embassy by Iranian protesters.  The Americans hid in the Canadian Ambassadors residence until the CIA could attempt a rescue.  Based on real events, the film was nominated for 7 Academy Awards and won three including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Achievement in Editing.  The film begins when the sky is dark enough, usually around 9:00.  Bring your lawn chair or blanket!
