Free Movies on the Block: 2008 Schedule

[ 4 ] June 12, 2008 |

I am thrilled that this series is back for a second 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 a building across from Tazza, on the corner of Westminster Street and Union Street. You can easily grab some drinks and food while you watch your favorite flicks under the stars.
Although some of these movies may be fun for the whole family, this event makes for a great date night or mom’s night out.

    do the movies start at sundown or at a particular time? anyone remember what happens in indiana jones? i am thinking of bringing a 5 & 7 year old to that one. too scary?

    Sundown probably means around 8 or 8:30 but I would call Tazza – they may know. A friend of mine just previewed Indiana Jones for her 6 year old and thought it was way too scary. I would preview first if possible and decide for yourself.
