Movies with a Downtown View

MWADV presented by Buckingham Properties is a set of FREE movie screenings in downtown Rochester. The movies will be captioned and we will have an ASL interpreter on hand for all announcements. We're kicking off Year 6 in Parcel 5 on Friday, July 12th with "Napoleon Dynamite"! The event starts at 7pm and the movie starts at approximately 8:45pm.

Buckingham Properties has graciously signed on for yet another year as the Title Sponsor of the Movies with a Downtown View ---This year, we're sharing the space with Midtown EATS as they have extended to Fridays! Purchase food and drinks from their many vendors (or go early to enjoy their happy hour from 4:30-6:30).... or bring your own picnic!

This event is produced by the Washington Square Park Community Association, Inc. in partnership with The Rochesteriat and MetroPops, but could not happen without the support of all of our amazing sponsors. Don't forget to sign up for our FREE Raffles, we will have local giveaways from great local establishments.

Walk, bike, or drive if you have to... there will be bike racks available. There is FREE street parking around the neighborhood and there is also FREE garage parking available at Midtown Parking Garage until 11pm for this event! This garage can be accessed from S. Clinton or E. Broad Street.

There will be some grass space available, but bring chairs, cushions, and other creative things for a fun night in downtown Rochester.
