Free Movies on the Block: 2009 Schedule

[ 1 ] May 19, 2009 |

3368866708_235e11cb1bI am thrilled that this series is back for another season–so cool to watch a free movie outdoors in downtown Providence. Films are shown every Thursday at dusk from June through September, weather permitting. The movie is projected on the side of the building across from Tazza (corner of Westminster Street and Union Street). Bring a blanket and some snacks or grab some food and drinks from nearby downtown eateries like Tazza or La Laterie to enjoy while you watch your favorite flicks under the stars.

Although some of these movies may be fun for the whole family, this event also makes for a great date night or mom’s night out.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory plays June 25, the last day of school for Providence Public School children. This is one of my favorite kids’ films so I plan to celebrate the start of our summer vacation by watching this film with my family. Bring a blanket and join us!
