2019 year marked the 10th season for Preserve the 'Burg's Movies in the Park, an event many refer to as the best “little” event in the waterfront parks. This FREE and fun community gathering, held each Thursday evening in May and in October, started in 2010 to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the city's historic downtown waterfront park.
The fun each movie evening begins with live local music followed by the movie on the big outdoor screen as it gets dark. It all takes place on St. Petersburg’s beautiful downtown waterfront in North Straub Park (400 Bayshore Dr., NE).
You will probably want to arrive at Movies early to choose a choice spot and to sit back and enjoy the beautiful evening while listening to live, local music. Bring a picnic or you can purchase food & drink (including beer & wine) from some of the best of the 'Burg's food vendors! 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. You can either use a Coast Bike Share bicycle (a bike share hub is across the street from North Straub Park) or use your own bicycle and park it with the secure, on-site bicycle valet parking.Email us with your movie recommendations!
Movies are free! However, pay-what-you-can donations are appreciated.
