Preserve the ‘Burg’s Movies in the Park Lineup Announced

Preserve the Burg’s Movies in the Park returns in October. This fall’s lineup of films includes Academy Award nominees, cult favorites and a family-friendly hit that’s basically appointment viewing before Halloween.

The local organization announced the films at an always anticipated event at the Ale and the Witch. All of the screenings are free and open to the public — and the movies begin showing at dusk.

All of the films will be shown in North Straub Park (400 Bayshore Drive Northeast).

Live music will be performed before each film, too. Grab a blanket, a lawn chair, your favorite picnic snacks and partake in one of the Burg’s favorite pastimes.

You can also take full advantage of the free bike valet courtesy of Coast Bike Share. Live downtown? Catch a free ride to North Straub Park with The Nickel Ride app.
