In Northern Virginia, some things in life are still free thanks to Cox Communications. For five nights, from June 24 through June 28, at Van Dyck Park in Fairfax, the company hosts its annual Cox Movies Under the Moon, a free outdoor film festival offering family-friendly entertainment under the stars. This is the seventh year that Cox has partnered with the City of Fairfax and 97.1 WASH FM to present this event. In keeping with Cox's commitment to the community, attendees are invited to contribute donations to benefit Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children. Cox Movies Under the Moon is shown using state-of-the-art digital projection on a giant 40-foot by 20-foot outdoor screen with a Dolby surround sound system similar to those in movie theaters.

(PG - 13) Gates will open each night at 6:30 p.m., and movies will start at 8:30 p.m. Spectators are encouraged to come early, bring blankets and beach chairs, and purchase food from on-site vendors to support Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children. Since 2003, Cox Movies Under the Moon has raised nearly $60,000 to benefit the hospital. For more information about the film festival, visit www.moviesunderthemoon.com.
