Elvis is Back with Special Screening
Join the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum for a Special Outdoor Screening of “Follow that Dream”
Elvis is Back!
Join Citrus County Historical Resources on the grounds of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum (located at 1 Courthouse Square, Inverness, FL 34450) on Friday, January 28, 2022, at 6:30pm for a free outdoor screening of their favorite film, “Follow that Dream,” starring Elvis Presley. This free outdoor screening will be held right outside the museum on the Historic Courthouse Square. Be sure to bring a blanket, a few lawn chairs, and a friend and enjoy an unforgettable evening of fun.
As many locals will tell you, Presley filmed much of the movie right here in Citrus County and surrounding parts of central Florida in 1961. Spoiler alert: the final scenes of the movie take place in the museum’s very own historic courtroom. Shortly after Presley and his Hollywood movie crew left, a growing Citrus County remodeled the interior of the courthouse. In the 1990s, the people of Citrus County had a dream to restore the circa 1912 courthouse to its original glory. Footage from the film helped restore this amazing piece of our local history.
The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum is a historical gem at the heart of Downtown Inverness. The proud structure has stood for over 100 years, and although the business of the court is no longer transacted there, it is still an important pillar to the community. It is a place of learning, a community space, and of course, an entertainment venue.
This program is brought to you in part by the Inverness Cultural Heritage Council, a d.b.a. of the Citrus County Historical Society, Inc. (a non-profit organization). Any donations to the Inverness Council benefit the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum exhibitions, educational programming, and scholarships. Partnerships and sponsorships are always available.
