I’ll keep this simple: free outdoor movies on the Charles every Wednesday in August!
The Cambridge Arts Council, the Department of Conservation and Recreation, and EF Education First are teaming up to present “River and a Movie,” a series of four films to celebrate the last month of summer. No need to bring popcorn—it’s free at the event—but you should plan on bringing your own chairs or blankets. You can start claiming spots on the lawn at 7:30pm, and while there is some parking, space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you can’t make it to tomorrow night’s showing of Midnight in Paris, hopefully you can come down to North Point for the other three films: Eat Pray Love, the classic Casablanca, and National Lampoon’s European Vacation. Not a bad way to end the summer!
