October is the month for Movies! Preserve the ‘Burg’s Movies in the Park

October is the month for Movies!  Preserve the ‘Burg’s Movies in the Park 

Bring family and friends to enjoy FREE film classics and music each Thursday evening in October on St. Petersburg’s beautiful downtown waterfront in North Straub Park (400 Bayshore Dr., NE). The movies and music events are produced by Preserve the ‘Burg (formerly St. Petersburg Preservation). The fun begins with music at 6 pm and movies at dark in the park, on Beach Drive and between 4th and 5th Avenues NE.

Movies are free; pay-what-you-can donations are appreciated.  The October Movie season wraps up our 9th season for Preserve the ‘Burg’s Movies in the Park, an event many refer to as “the best little event in the waterfront parks”!

Movie goers are welcome to come early to listen to live music and enjoy the beautiful evening with a picnic, either by purchasing food and drink from some of the St. Petersburg’s best vendors set up in the park or by bringing their own food. Bringing a blanket or low seat to sit on is recommended. There will be a limited number of folding chairs available. A great way to get to Movies in the Park is on bicycle and secure, on-site free bicycle valet parking will be available, thanks to Coast Bike Share.  And good news, dogs are welcome! 

Preserve the ‘Burg thanks our generous community sponsors, including Oscar level sponsors, Beltz & Beltz, Raymond James Financial, Inc., AARP of Tampa Bay and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.   Movies are co-sponsored by the City of St. Petersburg.
