Movies with a Downtown View

In 2018 we celebrated our 5th year of MWADV. Instead of our annual TWO movie nights in (one in July and one in August), we planned FIVE and added new locations. It was a blast and definitely not possibly without all of our incredible sponsors and community supporters.

Right now, we are in the final planning stages for 2019 - our 6th year! We have some exciting things planned with think you will love. For now… SAVE THE DATES:

Movies With a Downtown View is a collaboration between the Rochesteriat, the Washington Square Park Community Association, Inc. and of course our generous sponsors!

As always, we will have ASL interpreters at each event for all announcements and raffle drawings, and each movie will be captioned. Here are the details:
