It’s Throwback Thursday and the CasaBlanca has poolside movies tonight.

It’s the 50th anniversary of Batman starring Adam West. Throw on your suit, throw your things in the car and head on down to the pool; swimming will be allowed.

The pool is open early but the movie begins at 8:30 p.m.; don’t be late you won’t want to miss this blast from the past. For more information visit their web site at www.casablancaresort.com

Virgin Valley Heritage Museum will be exploring how stringed instruments make music at the art classroom between the Fine Arts Gallery and the Museum on Saturday.

Music has been a vital part of the Valley since the early settlers with dances, parades, choirs and family get-togethers.

The Virgin Valley Heritage Museum is grateful to have the Harmonics String Chamber Group explain and demonstrate their instruments. You will also have the opportunity to make your own stringed instruments and perform.

This is a free family-oriented activity and they invite everyone to join them for a fun morning.

For more information call 702-346-5705 or email ekuta@mesquitenv.gov.
