The Schuylkill Banks Free Outdoor Movie Nights Return For Summer 2014 On 10 Thursday Evenings, Beginning This Thursday, June 12

All summer long, the Schuylkill River Development Corporation hosts 10 free outdoor movie screenings at three parks along the Schuylkill River.


Outdoor movie screenings in public parks across the city are a summertime staple here in Philadelphia.

The Schuylkill River Development Corporation keeps up the tradition as it hosts free outdoor movie screenings on 10 nights throughout the summer.

The series kicks off this Thursday, June 12 with a screening of Rocky on the Schuylkill Banks by the Walnut Street Bridge. Following this week, the series continues to fill the silver screen at the waterfront park every other Thursday through August 21.

The series also makes its way to the Grays Ferry Crescent at Wharton Street and the Schuylkill Banks on Thursdays, June 19, July 17 and August 14. The free movies continue at Paine’s Park at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Thursday, July 31.

Throughout the summer, look forward to free outdoor screenings of Pitch Perfect, Zoolander, Back to the Future, Finding Nemo and more favorite films.

Admission to all outdoor films is completely free, and free snacks, drinks and a free raffle abound at each screening, too. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner as well.
