Movie-The Body Snatcher (NR) – 1945 Horror Classic Famed RKO Radio Pictures producer Val Lewton managed to single-handedly redefine the horror genre in the 1940s, cranking out low-budget, high-volume box office hits that rarely disappointed audiences -- or studio execs. The Body Snatcher stars Boris Karloff in his best screen performance and Bela Lugosi as his frightening assistant. 6:30 p.m. at The Red Barn Theater Saugatuck Hosted by John Hardy.

Hit the Antique Mall, the S.S. Keewatin  ,old steamship Museum, head over to the Saugatuck Center for the Arts and see the new exhibit titled A Passion for Painting: A Century of Art in Saugatuck/Douglas. This remarkable exhibition showcases works by painters both known and unknown who fell in love with the communities of Saugatuck and Douglas and made them (the dunes, water, forest, buildings, and boats) their studio.

Exhibitions
The award-winning Saugatuck-Douglas Museum has unveiled its 2010 exhibit: A Place Called Ox-Bow: 100 Years of Connecting Art, Nature, and People. Saugatuck's "Ox-Bow" is a site of many human and natural wonders: culture, nature, landscape, and waterscape, all unfolding from the Lake Michigan shoreline to the Kalamazoo River and the old Village of Saugatuck. This exhibit is about how for a century the Ox-Bow School has been a bridge between nature and art for thousands of people, comprising an important chapter in the history of the lakeshore and its dunes. This exhibit is open daily, noon to 4 p.m., until Labor Day, and on the weekends only in the fall. Admission is free. For more information, call 269-857-7901 or visit http://sdhistoricalsociety.org/.

The Beach
Did someone mention the beach or Lake Michigan again, of course you can take a long walk along the wide sandy beaches of Lake Michigan and smile at the greatness of the big pond. Why not visit the Saugatuck Dunes State Park (bring some water-it's a hot one today) and take a long walk through the woods, it will be just beautiful.
