This past Saturday night, August 11, Uwishunu hosted our first-ever Moonlit Movie Screening in Rittenhouse Square, featuring Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris.
It was awesome to see a crowd of 500+ gathered on the lawn before the event; thank you so much to everyone who came out. Despite some weather-related technical difficulties, and a little mid-movie rain, the night was a success, thanks to our fabulous partners and, most especially, you guys.
Below, we’ve got a photo recap of the night, with snapshots of all of the event’s major elements: free Shake Shack custard at the PHS Pop-Up Garden (open late specially for the event!); hot dogs, popcorn and lemonade from the decked-out Rouge on 18th Street; and, of course, the main event, the screening of Midnight in Paris.
This event is definitely something we want to try and do again in the future. (Hopefully with an even bigger screen and more speakers…) So let us know in the comments where you think we should host another Moonlit Movie Screening, and what movie it should feature!
And thanks again so much for coming out, picnicking and then sticking it out with us through the less than cooperative weather. We literally could not have done it without you.
Check out more photos below.
A huge thanks to our partners: Friends of Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia Film Society, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and Shake Shack, plus Rouge and the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department.
Again, let us know in the comments where you think we should host another Moonlit Movie Screening, and what movie it should feature!
