Movies Under the Walkway
Upper Landing Park in Poughkeepsie has become an outdoor cinema on certain Saturday evenings this summer, as the Millman Harris Romano (MHR) Foundation and Walkway Over the Hudson host Movies Under the Walkway, free movie nights on the banks of the Hudson River. Each family-friendly event starts with music at 7 p.m., followed by a movie at sunset. Upcoming showings include Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on July 14; Star Wars: The Last Jedi on July 21; Coco on August 4; and Black Panther on August 18.
Upper Landing Park is located at 83 North Water Street. Moviegoers should bring their own blankets or chairs. Food vendors will be on site, and free parking is available at Metro North and the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum.
According to MHRFoundation.org, “The Millman Harris Romano Foundation was established in 2001 to honor the memories of three men committed to the health, mind and spirit of their communities. Samuel K. Millman, James R. Harris and Salvatore Romano were dedicated to ‘giving back’ to the communities that had been instrumental to their lives and those of their neighbors, friends and families. They believed that all citizens should have the opportunity to participate and advance in personal and community issues such as education, cultural enrichment and health.”
