There are not a lot of places that you can go to watch movies outdoors these days. There was a time when the drive-in movie theater was all the rage... it's too bad that they are so hard to find now. Occasionally there is the random showing of a movie in a park, or at an outdoor festival, but you really have to search them out. That's why Movies in the Meadow is so much fun each summer - it's a chance to do something a little bit out of the ordinary. All throughout August movie-lovers can attend a series of film showings that include classic films with examples of Film Noir, Hitchcock mystery, romance, family fare, and comedy.
Don't forget to bring a chair, a blanket, a picnic and some friends, every Friday in August. The series is brought to you by The Parkside Community Association
and is free thanks to the generous support of M&T Bank and Councilman Michael LoCurto. Here's the line-up:
Friday, August 3rd - Casablanca (8:30 start)
Friday, August 10th - Rear Window (8:25 start)
Friday, August 17th - It Happened One Night (8:15 start)
Friday, August 24th - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (8:04 start)
Friday, August 31st - Young Frankenstein (7:55 start)
