Movies in the Park 

Bring family and friends to enjoy FREE film classics and live music each Thursday evening in October on St. Petersburg’s beautiful downtown waterfront in North Straub Park. The fun begins with music at 6 pm and movies at dark in the park, on Beach Dr. and between 4th and 5th Ave NE. 

The October Movies and Music were revealed at our Announcement Party Thursday, September 13th at The Ale and the Witch (see movies below). We also revealed our movie poster (right), new for the season! Check out our Facebook or Instagram and invite your friends! 

Come to Movies early to choose a choice spot & sit back and enjoy the beautiful evening while listening to the live music and having a picnic. One can either purchase food & drink (including beer & wine) from some of the best of the 'Burg's vendors set up in the park or you can bring your own. Bring a blanket or low seat, a limited number of folding chairs will be available. A great way to get to Movies in the Park is on bicycle! Pick-up a bike from one of the many Coast Bike Share stations, a convenient station is located next to Movies in the Park Downtown. If you bring your own bike, secure, free on-site bicycle valet parking will be available thanks to Coast Bike Share.  Good news, we allow dogs! 

Movies are free; pay-what-you-can donations appreciated.  This is the 9th year of Movies in the Park, an event many refer to as the best “small” event in the waterfront parks.
