New outdoor film series in downtown Albany

downtown Albany deja view movie series posterA 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.

I was very negative about the road diet when it was announced but I really love it and am excited to see it continue all the way to Lark. I eat my words!
