Dust off those lawn chairs, call your friends–after the sun sets (after 8:30pm) on Wednesday June 10th…and if it’s not raining (fingers crossed), we start up our 11th Season of Films in Van Vorst!!

With a generous donation from Dixon Leasing –we will be showing our films on a new screen and with a new projector! And we couldn’t have the season without additional help from Silverman: Building Neighborhoods, PSE&G, and JCMC Barnabas Health, The City of Jersey City, The Friends of Van Vorst Park & the Van Vorst Park Association–we are VERY GRATEFUL to all–

Our first film:

THE IMITATION GAME – Directed by Morten Tyldum

We are working out the details of the rest of the season and hope to have that finalized in the next few days!!

Remember–

Bring a chair, Bring a friend–the movie & popcorn is on us!


 

We love films, we love the summer, we love free stuff and we love our park.

Films in Van Vorst was envisioned as a way to combine these elements and as a way to generate an environment where we could meet and strengthen our sense of community while finding new and imaginative ways to utilize of our beautiful park.

This summer we will screen one movie every other Wednesday, beginning June 13th, for a total of eight movies. The city has already given us their thumbs up and have added us to their summer cultural calendar.

So come join us at the park this summer, leave your cell phones at home and make sure to bring a chair and a blanket. We hope you enjoy the show!
