Palace Theatre Free Summer Movie Series Continues a Successful Run into August



Coming into the month of August, the Palace Theatre’s “Summer In The City” Movie Series, co-presented by SEFCU and Albany Med, has already seen an increased impact on the surrounding neighborhoods through greater attendance and community engagement. In the month of July alone over 4,000 people attended our free summer movie events, enjoyed delicious free popcorn and participated in fun, educational crafts and activities provided by our sponsors and partners.

Summer in the City is one of several free and low-cost arts and educational programs that the Palace presents for children and families. In 2017, these programs reach more than 30,000  students each year. Last summer, for instance, Summer in the City alone served 7,500 children and families. The Palace, SEFCU and Albany Med are aiming to surpass that number this year.

For each show, doors open at noon with educational activities provided by Albany Med, SEFCU, Whitney M. Young, Jr. Health Center. Movies begin at 1 p.m. Free popcorn is provided to all children 12 and under. For the Summer in the City finale on Tuesday, Aug. 28, The Palace will host an ice cream social immediately following the showing of Disney’s “Moana.” The ice cream social is free and open to the public. Included in the ice cream social will be a face painter, balloon artist, crafts, games and ice cream provided by Stewarts Shops.
