Parkside Community Movie Nights

This program is one of a series of Parkside community movie screenings organized by Fairmount Park Conservancy, each in collaboration with a different West Fairmount Park partner organization. Each date focuses on the mission and work of the presenting partner, with an interactive activity organized by the partner to take place before the movie.

Movies will be screened outdoors at the John Welsh Memorial Fountain, across the street from the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. A local food truck will be on hand each night, serving up tasty fare.
