See ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ for free

July 31, 2012

“Captain America: The First Avenger” comes to Issaquah soon for the summertime Movie on the Green.

The film starts at 8 p.m. Sept. 8 on the Issaquah Community Center lawn, 301 Rainier Blvd. S. The free event is presented by the municipal Parks & Recreation Department and Lunar Flicks.

Lunar Flicks provides the inflatable screen and the digital projectors to screen the film.

Released last year, “Captain America: The First Avenger” features Chris Evans as the title character, a patriotic crusader unleashed against the Nazis — and super-villain Red Skull — in World War II. Tommy Lee Jones stars as a gruff colonel; Hayley Atwell is Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest.

(Evans’ character later popped up in the summer mega-blockbuster “The Avengers.”)

The film runs for 124 minutes, so attendees should bring a blanket or lawn chair to remain comfortable during the event. Organizers also plan to sell concessions during the film.

“Captain America: The First Avenger” is rated PG-13.
