Presented by Berkshire Bank, Fidelis Care & SEFCU, the FREE outdoor summer movie series Bites Camera Action will transform a section of South Pearl Street into an open-air movie theater for six Monday evenings this summer! S. Pearl Street will close to traffic and films will be screened on the Times Union Center's enormous new LED screens each week.
The series kicks off with the inspiring 2006 film "Invincible", featuring a special meet & greet with Albany Empire players in recognition of Empire co-owner and former Philadelphia Eagles coach Dick Vermeil, portrayed by Greg Kinnear in the movie!
South Pearl Street will close to vehicular traffic from Beaver Street to Hudson Avenue at 6:30 PM. Music and games for all ages begin at 6:30 PM. A new short film from award-winning non-profit digital media program Youth FX will play each week at 7:00 PM, showcasing the work of talented young Capital Region filmmakers. "Invincible" will begin at 7:30 PM.
The “bites” will be available onsite from local restaurants neighboring the Times Union Center. In addition, Times Union Center vendor Aramark will provide popcorn, beer, wine, and soft drinks for purchase. Music and free games for all ages, including cornhole, giant Connect Four, chess, and dominoes, will add to the fun prior to the screening.
Don't forget to bring your chairs for this family-friendly outdoor event!
