Movies on the Block

MOTB is Back — with a Twist

Hello from Movies on the Block!

Apologies for the delay! Our 2018 season has been up in the air, as our former home at Grant’s Block is going to be under construction this summer. Cornish Associates has some exciting plans in store for that space – read more about that here.

While we will be unable to host the normal 17-week long movie season, we’re thrilled to announce we’ve found a way to keep the flame burning while we’re in transition to a more permanent home.

This summer, Movies on the Block will be back for just TWO very special screenings in a very special location. On June 21 and July 19 we’ll be screening two of our all-time favorites in the parking lot next to The Strand, located at 78 Fountain Street, between Mathewson Street and Clemence Street. (If you’re a Rhode Islander, you’ll know it as the back of the building where Coffee King used to be.) It’s going to be great! No need to bring anything but your good attitude, friends, beach chairs and blankets.

With Special Guests (starting at 6:30pm):

As always, it’s FREE to attend this non-ticketed event. We ask that guests leave pets at home and respect each other’s quiet enjoyment of the movie. Movies on the Block is not responsible for enforcing age restrictions. Please attend responsibly and do not bring children below the suggested age limit for a particular film.

Screenings begin at sunset (approximately 8/8:30pm, depending on the date). Space is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we recommend arriving with ample time before the movie starts.

No seating is provided; please bring your own blanket or chairs. We can’t wait to see you!
