Downtown Rochester – The 11th season of Movies in the Moonlight is full of blockbuster hits and fun for all ages – and this year it’s super-sized with six nights of movies!

Movies in the Moonlight is located in the parking lot at the corner of E. Third & Water, one block east of Main. Featured movies begin at dusk (approximately 9:15 pm) and pre-shows start at 8:30 pm. Admission is free, so arrive early for the best seating. Movies in the Moonlight is BYOC (Bring Your Own Chairs)!
