Movies With a Downtown View

Did you know 2022 is the 8th year of Movies With a Downtown View? It's true!

Movies With a Downtown View is back with 3 fantastic events. This year, the Washington Square Community Association is partnering with Downtown Definitely to make the events bigger and better than ever.

Each event is FREE, family-friendly, features free snacks (from Foodlink), free giveaways, food trucks (with vegan options!) and of course – a great movie. Movies are always shown with captions and an ASL interpreter will be with us for all announcements.
