Its the 10th Anniversary for the best small event on the waterfront - Movies in the Park! Each movie evening starts with live music at 6 pm followed by the movie on the big screen at dusk. The fun takes place in N. Straub Park, between 4th Ave. & 5th Ave. NE at Beach Dr. Movies in the Park are Free!
Come early to enjoy the local band before the movie and to get your favorite spot! Bring a picnic or purchase food from some of the 'Burg's best food vendors, set up on-site. A limited number of folding chairs will be available, but better yet, bring a blanket or low seat!
Bicycling to movies is a fun way to arrive and you can do so using a Coast Bike Share bicycle (a bike station is located across the street from Movies in the Park). For those on their own bike, free bicycle valet parking will be provided by Coast.
October 24 -Indiana Jones - Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) PG – The film that started the Indiana Jones series and introduced Harrison Ford as the adventure loving archaeologist Indiana Jones. The movie won four Oscars and, for many, it is their favorite Indiana Jones movie. Evening's Music by Gloria West & the Gents. They bring old school swing jazz with a sultry twist. From classic mid-tempo swing-dancing numbers to sultry torch songs on the edge of the blues, their fast-paced high-energy and Gloria's Billie Holiday like vocals’ are guaranteed to get anyone’s foot tapping. Creative Loafing calls West, “One of the most dynamic voices working in the Tampa Bay area.”
