Movies in the Park Tonight: 8/2/13

 rfme

Watch Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit under the stars and above (and, yes, overlooking) Manhattan tonight. Riverview-Fisk Park plays playground to this screening.

The movie starts at sundown…which by my guesstimate means it’s best to set up your blankets and chairs circa 7:30pm. That will give you enough time to grab your free popcorn and Lizzmonade lemonade (yes, it’s all free) and get comfortably cozy in time for the viewing.

The Washington Park Association (WPA), Riverview Neighborhood Association and Pershing Field Garden Friends organized this night (and the upcoming Jersey City movies in the park series) with Hudson County Parks and the Board of Chosen Freeholders.

More info is available here.

 

Enjoy,
