Reel Downtown Movies
Who doesn’t love a good movie? What’s even better? A FREE movie!
In an earlier post, I mentioned an event called Reel Downtown Movies. Basically, every Monday night in July they show a movie on the side of a building in the middle of downtown St. John’s. The only catch is you have to bring your own chair and snacks. They even shut down half the street so there are no cars going by to ruin the sound.
This has been going on for a number of years, but I finally had the opportunity to see an outdoor movie this summer. I went to see the 80’s classic The Goonies. I had already seen the movie and absolutely love it anyway, but seeing it outdoors was a whole new level of amazing. There were so many people around enjoying it and laughing along with me. It was a great experience.
I certainly wasn’t the only one who checked out this movie. They had one of the biggest crowds ever for this one! Check out the picture above that Downtown St. John’s tweeted of the event. You can’t even see half the people in the street, or up on the sides of the buildings.
If you find yourself here in July, I suggest taking in one of the movies. It’s a great experience!
