Movies with a Downtown View
After 4 wonderful and successful years MWADV is back for its 5th year! We have a lot of things planned to make this year bigger and better than the last. Would we be crazy enough to try to plan 5 movies for our 5th year? Yes. Do we have new locations around downtown planned? Definitely!
Movies With a Downtown View is a collaboration between The Little Theatre, the Rochesteriat, the Washington Square Park Community Association, Inc. and of course our generous sponsors!
This year we are excited to announce we have 5 movies lined up. As always, we will have an ASL interpreter at each event for all announcements and raffle drawings, and each movie will be captioned. Here are the details:
CANCELLED: Friday, 8/17 @ 7pm in MLK Jr. Memorial Park, showing The Muppets
NOTE: Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the event tonight. The possible thunderstorms tonight are too great to be able to chance everyone's safety. We hope you understand and join us for our LAST event on September 7th. Please see all of the details below....
Find the event on Facebook.
Friday, 9/7 @ 6:30pm in Parcel 5, showing The Greatest Showman
To wrap up our 5th year with a bang we will be showing The Greatest Showman in Parcel 5 (285 E. Main Street)! While we know this is mostly gravel, we will have a small section of grass and we know you can get creative for some comfortable seating. Purchase food and drinks from local vendors and sign up for our free raffles at the Washington Square Park Community Association table in the back. NOTE: the Midtown Parking Garage will be open for FREE this night only from 6-11pm! This garage can be accessed from S. Clinton or E. Broad Street.
The movie will start around 8pm. Find the event on Facebook.
