REVISED: Please note this post is from 2014. We are thrilled to finally announce a huge collaborative planning effort we've been a part of the last several months:
Buckingham Properties & Rochester Area Community Foundation Present:
We know that downtown is growing and, needless to say, we love it! We also know that it's not just the huge developments that will reestablish this as a great city, it's the small businesses, corner stores, entrepreneurs, events and more that really bring the city alive.
So, this summer JOIN US in Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park for an unforgettable experience: Movies with a Downtown View. Bring a blanket, friends, and/or a date, and enjoy a movie with the cityscape as your backdrop.
Come hungry and bring some cash - support some of our city's great food trucks and one of our favorite local breweries - or bring your own picnic! We will also be giving away bags of White Cheddar popcorn to the first 250 movie-goers, courtesy of Frito Lay, so make sure to come early.
This has been a collaboration between multiple organizations within our city and includes The Little Theatre, the Washington Square Park Neighborhood Association (WSPNA), the City of Rochester, and of course our generous sponsors.
Don't just come early for the popcorn, but for the TRIVIA! We will be hosting trivia prior to the event with our friends over at Rochester Brainery! Prizes for the winners include class vouchers to Rochester Brainery, tickets to Dryden Theatre, surprises from Hart's Grocers, and more!
Walk, bike, skateboard, or drive if you have to - but whatever you do, come down and enjoy a movie with us under the lights and stars of our city. Be a part of our changing Center City!
