MASSAC COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

If you're looking for a way to get points with your favorite snuggle partner, perhaps a trip to the park would fit the bill...Fort Massac State Park, that is.  

Organizers are offering a Movies in the Park night for anyone who wants a fun way to spend a night out.

It's September 4, so there's plenty of time to round up a blanket, picnic basket and perhaps a nice bottle of Chianti, which goes well with fava beans (according to famous movie bad guy, Hannibal Lector in "Silence of the Lambs").

The movie selection for this, however, is something a bit more tame.

"When the Game Stands Tall" starring Jim Caviezel of CBS's "Person of Interest" fame. It's the story of a high school football coach who has a brush with calamity making for his most challenging season yet.

The movie starts at dusk and concessions are available, but we're guessing not fava beans. Those can be purchased separately at your local store or farmers market.  

Here's the best part...it's FREE!!  And if weather doesn't hold out, the movie will be shown in the visitor center.
