Movies on the Block

Join Awbury, Weavers Way Co-Op, and the Philadelphia Film Society for Movies on the Block – an exceptional outdoor movie event in an extraordinary setting!

Come see “The Secret of Kells,” a beautiful international animated film for audiences of all ages.

Location: the tented patio at the Cope House, Awbury Arboretum, 1 Awbury Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19138

Film starts promptly at 7:30 PM, rain or shine.  Please allow time to park and walk to the tent next to the Cope House.

Stroll into the Arboretum anytime after 6:00 PM and enjoy the grounds before the movie starts, with free watermelon, face painting, live music with songster Barry Goldstein, adorable wandering Philly Goats, tours with Let’s Go Outdoors, games, crafts, and giveaways. Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic dinner, if you like!

This event is FREE and OPEN TO EVERYONE! No registration required.

Movies on the Block is a free, seasonal screening program designed to support Philadelphia neighborhoods with little access to film. By partnering with local community groups and organizations, each event invigorates established community gathering spaces and facilitates engagement with meaningful film programming and activities.
