Movies in the Moonlight 2016

Join Downtown Rochester on Saturday, July 16 as we kick off the 15th season of Movies in the Moonlight. This season there is four consecutive fun filled Saturday nights.

“I can’t think of a better way for families to spend their Saturday nights under the stars”, said Stephanie Hellebuyck, Events Coordinator of the Rochester Downtown Development Authority. “Movies in the Moonlight is a community staple for many local families.”

Movies in the Moonlight is located in the parking lot at the corner of E. Third & Water, one block east of Main.  Featured movies begin at dusk (approximately 9:15 pm) and pre-shows start at 8:30 pm.  Admission is free, so arrive early for the best seating.  Movies in the Moonlight is BYOC (Bring Your Own Chairs)! Popcorn, candy, hot dogs and soft drinks will be available for purchase at the Rochester Lions Club concession wagon, but you are welcome to bring your own.
