It’s that brief, glorious time of year for activities under the stars that must be enjoyed indoors at other seasons. Besides outdoor theater, our region also hosts several summer film series to which the general public is invited free of charge, with other attractions such as live music and food vendors typically on hand as well. Two of them are happening this Saturday evening, August 10.
Under the big tent at the Hasbrouck House restaurant in Stone Ridge, rain or shine, the Sunset Flix Film series will present what is billed as an “interactive” screening of Dirty Dancing (1987). That suggests that attendees, who are encouraged to wear circa-1963 themed costumes, will have opportunities to get up and dance themselves on the bluestone patio or the lawn. Food and drink will be served. The event begins at 7 p.m. and the movie at 8. To find out more, visit www.hasbrouckhouseny.com/eventscalendar/2019/8/10/hh-move-night-dirty-dancing.
Also this Saturday, the family-friendly Movies under the Walkway series at Upper Landing Park in Poughkeepsie continues with a free sunset screening of Captain Marvel (2019). Musical guests the B-Boyz begin playing at 7 p.m., and there will be food trucks on hand for your picnicking pleasure. Park at the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum or the Metro North station, and bring your own chairs and blankets.
