‘Secondhand Lions’

Walter, a shy and quiet boy, is suddenly dropped off at a house in the middle of nowhere for the summer. Hastily his mother introduces Walter to his uncles, Uncle Hub and Uncle Garth. Walter fears that his summer will be depressing, but his thoughts are suddenly changed when his uncles run a salesman off their property with a shot gun. Walter soon realizes that his summer will be anything but normal. It is a magical summer that shows you are never too old to be mischievous and adventurous.

The Idaho Botanical Garden is bringing back the summer drive-in atmosphere with Movies in the Garden. Bring a blanket, and come out to the Garden as we host a variety of movies on the giant-outdoor-big-screen. Come early to enjoy a picnic dinner in the Garden. Vendors on site offer dinner, adult refreshments and movie snacks.

Movies play every other Friday, July – September.
