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 continue in 2020.
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.
Drive-In Movie: Independence Day
DT2 and Habitat for Humanity St. Louis hosted our first drive-in movie on June 26th, 2020.
Over 60 cars attended the drive-in, with Independence Day projected on the side of Habitat’s building. In addition to the movie, the event featured food trucks, community information, and the premiere of our Dutchtown Proud video.
