MWADV 2018 is DONE... or is it?

It’s hard to believe, but the 5th year of Movies With a Downtown View presented by Buckingham Properties has come and gone! To celebrate our 5th we decided to show 5 movies instead of the typical 2. After a somewhat rainy summer, we were happy to be able to end our season with 4 successful movie nights.

These events are not possible without all of our incredible sponsors, community partners and the City of Rochester. This year we even had custom MWADV and ROC buttons thanks to our title sponsor Buckingham Properties. Their support over the last 5 years has really made these movie events possible.

This year was also the 1st year we ventured outside of MLK Jr. Memorial Park. In addition to a movie in MLK Park, we were in Washington Square Park, Parcel 5 and even at the Hyatt’s Center City Terrace + Lounge space.

Each year we partner with The Little Theatre to try to show at least one movie that our audience might not be familiar with, but we think they’ll love. This year we had two: Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Sing Street and they were GREAT. The other two were Office Space and The Greatest Showman.

And despite the gravel, we ended the year in Parcel 5 and it was a huge hit. Hundreds of people brought out their camping chairs and creative seating to join us for The Greatest Showman in the heart of downtown.

A huge thank you to Alex G Weiser for taking some incredible photos and sharing them with us. Check out the gallery below for a peek at our last movie:

Guess what? We’re not really done!

Just when we thought we were done, our 5 Year Celebration Sponsor, the Hyatt, reached out to partner with us on ONE MORE MOVIE for 2018 - a Halloween Night at their Center City Terrace + Lounge. Since 1 of our original 5 nights had to be cancelled, we couldn’t be more excited at add this as our last official movie for the year (we mean it this time!).
