Movies Under The Stars



Family, neighbors, blankets, popcorn, food trucks, and a 26-foot screen can only mean Movies Under the Stars

The neighborhood drive-in movie theater experience is reinvented and perfect for those lazy summer nights. Every Friday evening in August, we show popular films on the lawn of the Water Tower Recreation Center projected on a 26 foot screen. Families bring their friends, blankets, and lawn chairs and fill up the terraced lawn.  The fun starts at 7:00 p.m. with Philadelphia food trucks set up to sell delicious treats, entrees, beverages and sandwiches. Come early and enjoy a picnic before the film begins at 8:00 p.m.
 

   
 










 

Just another event the CHCA organizes to bring people together to enjoy good times, a good movie, some good food… all outdoors under the night sky at Water Tower Recreation Center. Water Tower Recreation Center is located at 209 East Hartwell Lane, Phila., Pa.
