ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Midway Village transformed its Victorian Village to something a little more modern Sunday night.
A giant screen was put up and the lawn behind the church was packed with people for a movie night under the stars. Since it was outside and there was a full moon it seemed only fitting to show the movie October Sky.
Although this is a little more modern than most events Midway Village organizers say the movie is still teaches a great history lesson.
“With Rockford's strong tradition of aero-space manufacturing it seemed like a great fit and a great movie to share as a family and talk about Rockford history at the same time," Laura Furman, from Midway Village, said.
