Voting open for downtown Albany outdoor movie series

Tricentennial Park

Tricentennial Park is the park on Broadway across from Kiernan Plaza/the old train station.

Outdoor movies and food trucks are returning to downtown Albany this summer -- together.

The Downtown Albany BID is combining the Deja View film series and the Fork in the Road food truck series into a new string of events: Bites Camera Action.

It'll be in Tricentennial Park Monday evenings from July 10 through August 14. Food trucks and music will run from 5-8 pm. Movies start around 8:30 pm (depending on sunset).

As it did last year, the BID has a survey to ask people which movies they'd like to see screened in the series this summer. The survey is online and it also serves as an entry to a drawing for a $100 downtown Albany restaurant gift certificate.

The survey asks for people to pick six films from a list of more than 20 choices that span from old favorites such as Back to the Future to more recent films such as La La Land and The Martian.

[T]he outdoor speakers are even more obnoxious than the video boards, if that's possible. An insult to the taxpayers of Albany County, and to people who live or work in the neighborhood.
