Reader Tip: Free Outdoor Movies at Waterside Plaza


Reader, Bess, from Brooklyn gave us the heads up about yet another place to enjoy free family friendly outdoor movies this summer—Waterside Plaza. Waterside Plaza is the apartment complex/community east of the FDR in the 20s. It can be reached by the 25th Street footbridge over the highway or by taxi or bus at 23rd St.

In August there will be a series of movies, music and dancing on the plaza with views of the East River.

Movies are Monday nights at 8:30. Free popcorn and beverages are available. There is limited seating. You should bring your own folding chairs or blankets. Here's the line-up of free family friendly films:

8:30PM August 4: Shrek III

8:30PM August 11: Lost Horizon

8:30PM August 18: E.T.

8:30PM August 25: Singin' in the Rain

They also have a Music Under the Stars Series, featuring local artists and dancing. Upcoming dates are: Wednesday, August 6 and 13 at 7-9PM

Check the website for other events including dance and performances at other times.
