Movies in the Park: The Greatest Showman
Thursday August 26
Movie begins at twilight, between approximately 8:30 and 8:50 p.m. Entry starts at 7 p.m.
Summer’s here! Get out with the family and enjoy a season of free movies in the park beginning Thursday, June 3, in Oswego at the site of the new Oswego Entertainment Venue, 1010 Station Drive.
This year’s Movies in the Park series offers two options for movies-goers – a drive-in style experience and spots in front for an outdoor experience. Cars will be parked in every space in the drive-in portion of the event, and space down in front of the screen will be available for those who prefer to bring their own chairs and sit under the stars.
Movies in the Park are free, and no registration is required. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring your own lawn chairs for outdoor seating, which will be in the parking lot in front of the big screen.
No food trucks will be on site, but attendees are invited to bring their own food and drinks. (Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.) Portable restrooms and sinks will be provided. Attendees are asked to follow all CDC health and safety guidance in place the day of the show.
