A new outdoor-movie series starts in downtown Albany next week. "Deja View" will be showing films in Tricentennial Park each Thursday evening through September 1. Here's the schedule, which was selected by an online vote:
+ August 11: Up
+ August 18: Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
+ August 25: The Princess Bride
+ September 1: Salt
(Tricentennial Park is the park across from the former train station on Broadway.)
The films start at 7:45 pm. It's a bring-your-own-chair or blanket kind of thing. There will be a concession stand in the park, and a handful of restaurants around downtown will be offering deals (see the link above).
The series is a collaboration between the Downtown Albany BID, the Albany Parking Authority, The Palace, and it's funded in party one of those Amplify Albany grants from Capitalize Albany.
Speaking of outdoor movies... The Capitol Park After Dark series of outdoor movies in West Capitol Park starts August 17 with Big Hero 6.
The Downtown Albany BID advertises on AOA.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
