About the Louis Bluver Outdoor Movie Series
A summer-long themed series of free film screenings in the Haas Biergarten underneath the Ben Franklin Bridge. Enjoy dinner and drinks from La Peg inside and outside in Haas Biergarten. Films are shown every Wednesday evening at 8:30 beginning on June 12th and ending on August 21st (excluding July 3). This year, June’s theme is Record Stores, July’s theme is ’90s Throwbacks, and August’s theme is Unconventional Love Stories.
“With everything going on in this crazy world, I thought we all deserved some much-needed time off from reality. Whether you want an excuse to celebrate a belated Rex Manning Day, pretend you invented Post-Its, or just want to hear the most annoying sound in the world, there’s an escape for everyone. There is something incredibly special about seeing a movie for, perhaps, the hundredth time surrounded by dozens of people who love it just as much as you do. It’s as close as you’ll get to actually seeing it for the first time again.” –Catherine Preston, curator
