The Washington County Historical Society is pleased to hold a free outdoor movie screening of Roger Corman’s Little Shop of Horrors. This horror comedy film is about a clumsy florist’s assistant who cultivates a plant that feeds on human blood. The film was the basis for an off Broadway musical, which was made into a feature film in 1986 and had a revival on Broadway in 2003.

The movie will begin at dusk. Please bring your own mask, chairs, blankets, and snacks for this socially distanced screening! The event will be held outdoors but masks will be needed in the school.

The Hay Lake School was constructed in 1896 and used by the Washington County Rural School system until 1963. The building remained empty until 1970 when a group of citizens, many of whom graduated from the Hay Lake School, decided to clean and open the school to tours.

The school was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 1, 1970. In 1978 the Washington County Historical Society purchased the school from the Forest Lake School District.

The Hay Lake School Museum is located at 14020 195th St N, Marine on St Croix, MN 55047.

Please contact Katie Hutton at or 651-433-4014 with any questions regarding this event.
