Movies with a Downtown View 2021

presented by Buckingham Properties

Movies With a Downtown View presented by Buckingham Properties is traditionally a set of FREE movie showings in downtown Rochester, NY. Each year these events are produced by the Washington Square Community Association in partnership with MetroPops, and could not happen without the support of all of our amazing sponsors. 

Here are some of the details:

  • 4 DATES!!! Friday evenings: 7/16, 8/6, 8/20 and 9/3 – all “At the 5” in Center City
  • Movies will be announced in the coming weeks
  • Bring a blanket and a picnic, or purchase from our onsite Food Trucks, from The Mercantile, or pop into DGX for some snacks;  if you are bringing chairs, be respectful of the viewing lines of those seated with blankets and setup farther back or along the perimeter. 
  • Free Giveaways!!
  • The movies are always captioned and we have an ASL interpreter on hand for all announcements

2019 - Year 6

Looking Back...

Back in the summer of 2019 we kicked-off Year 6 in Parcel 5 on Friday, July 12th with Napoleon Dynamite and then showed E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in MLK Jr. Memorial Park on Friday, August 16th.

In 2018 we celebrated 5 Years with 5 Movies: Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Office Space, Sing Street, The Greatest Showman, and Hocus Pocus. The Muppets was on the schedule, but had to be cancelled due to rain.
