DT2 • Downtown Dutchtown hosts family friendly Movie Nights at Marquette Park during the summer. You, your family, your neighbors, and everyone else are invited! These events are free to the community.
We hope that in 2021, the pandemic will have passed and we’ll be able to gather closely with our neighbors again as usual. We’re still selecting the movies, but you can put these dates on your calendar:
- Saturday, June 5th
- Saturday, July 24th
- Saturday, August 28th
We’ll have food trucks and community organizations on hand beginning at 7:30pm, and the movie will go on as soon as it’s dark.
Sponsor Dutchtown Movie Nights
It’s never too early to ask us about sponsorships! We offer arrangements to include your name or logo on promotional materials, and we can also show your video during the “previews” before the movie. Get in touch with us to discuss sponsorship options.
Past Movie Nights
DT2 and Allies of Marquette Park hosted their first series of movie events in Marquette Park in the summer of 2019. Dutchtown Movie Nights continued in 2020, offering family friendly and socially distanced entertainment for the Dutchtown community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
2019 Movie Nights
Youth Movie Night: Black Panther
Our first movie night at Marquette Park was a huge success! Over 100 neighbors turned out to watch Marvel’s Black Panther on the big screen, and dozens of kids got to enjoy free pizza, popcorn, and Ted Drewes Frozen Custard.
Dive-In Movie Fundraiser: Splash
It may have rained on our Dive-In Movie Fundraiser, but donors still made a big splash raising over $7,000 for improvements at the pool! Read all about it here.
Dive-In Movie: Moana
The poolside showing of Disney’s Moana on August 10th, 2019 drew quite a crowd to the Marquette Park Pool for late-night swimming and entertainment.
