Preserve the 'Burg's Movies in the Park - Movie Announcement Party & Poster Unveiling

PRESERVE THE ‘BURG’S MOVIES IN THE PARK MOVIE ANNOUNCEMENT PARTY & POSTER UNVEILING

Preserve the ‘Burg’s (PTB) May Movies in the Park is just around the corner and that means the wait to find out which movies have been chosen is almost over! PTB will announce the movie selections and unveil the May 2018 movie poster on Thursday evening, April 12th, from 6:00-8:00 pm in the courtyard at The Ale & the Witch, 111 2nd Avenue NE. Proceeds from beer sales will be donated to Preserve the ‘Burg (formerly St. Petersburg Preservation). The event is free.

Movie trivia questions will be asked, offering hints to the movie titles that have been selected. Prizes will be given to those who guess the May Movie title!

What has become a tradition with Movies in the Park is the creation of a unique and collectable promotional poster. This year’s poster artist is St. Pete’s own Laura Spencer. The wonderful and eclectic poster will be on display and for sale at the announcement party.

May Movies in the Park occurs each Thursday evening in May (3, 10, 17, 24 & 31). Each movie evening starts with live local music at 7 pm followed by the movie on the big outdoor screen at dusk. The fun takes place in North Straub Park, between 4th Ave. & 5th Ave. NE on Beach Drive. Movie goers can come early, enjoy live music before the movie and enjoy a picnic they can either bring or purchase food from vendors who will be set up on-site. Bicycling to movies is a fun way to arrive and free bicycle valet parking will be provided by Coast Bike Share during the movies. Movies are free.

PTB hosts Movies in the Park on Thursday evenings during the months of May and October. The event started in 2010 as part of the Downtown Waterfront Park Centennial and has become one of the best and most loved events offered in St. Pete’s waterfront parks.

Thanks to Oscar level sponsors Sylvia Rusche State Farm Insurance, AARP Tampa Bay and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital for their support in making Movies in the Park a success!
