LST 393 Museum announces 2022 Movies on Deck lineup

Queue the sunset! Roll down the giant screen! Grab that popcorn bag!

Yes, it’s Friday night in downtown Muskegon and time for the popular “Movies on Deck” at USS LST 393 Veterans Museum.

Now in its 16th year (with a one-year pandemic hiatus), the film series continues to thrive because families and businesses have committed to sponsoring individual movies.  

The historic warship’s “Movies on Deck” 2022 has a remarkable lineup, featuring some of the most popular movies of all time. The films are shown on LST 393’s huge screen on the top deck starting right after sunset, around 10 p.m. In August, films start about 9:30.

There is no charge to attend “Movies on Deck” screenings, although donations to help support the ship’s restoration and veterans museum are always welcome. Moviegoers should bring their own chairs; popcorn, soda and snacks are available for sale.

Inclement weather will mean a move down inside the giant tank deck of the ship for an indoor showing. The museum’s indoor audio-video system has been recently upgraded by Muskegon’s Geeks Inc. If moved inside, the movie will start at 10 p.m.

This summer’s list of movies includes some all-time greats, including the original “Ironman” starring Robert Downey Jr. and half cartoon/half live action favorite “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”  

The war movie – LST 393 is a World War II veteran with three battle stars, after all – is “Flying Leathernecks” starring John Wayne. The summer wraps up with everybody’s favorite delinquent “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

LST 393 is located at the Mart Dock adjacent to Heritage Landing county park on the downtown Muskegon waterfront. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. six days a week with the last tour starting at 4. Special guided tours are available and group events can be scheduled by calling 730-1477. More information is available at
