Newark’s Military Park (downtown at Raymond Boulevard and Broad Street from the south, and Broad and Rector Streets from the north ) will bring back its summer outdoor movie series this coming Tuesday, July 5th when it airs Star Wars immediately after the opening night of the Guard D’Avant music festival (which itself will run five Tuesdays in a row starting July 5th).
For the seven Tuesdays afterwards, the park will air movies starting at 9 p.m., including Prince’s classic concert film Purple Rain, Eddie Murphy’s still-hilarious-nearly-30-years-later movie Coming to America, and the critically acclaimed Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba.
Movies will be shown on the park’s Great Lawn, which is the end closest to NJPAC. The showings are free and open to the public.
See below for the full schedule:
July 5th: Star Wars
July 12th: Jaws
July 19th: Enter the Dragon
July 26th: Purple Rain
