When the lazy days of summer kick in and you’re too tired to paint the town red, yet you don’t want to waste a breezy summer night locked up inside, head to Movies In the Park, Red Bank’s exciting summer outdoor movie event taking place in June & July.

Movies in the Park, held at Riverside Gardens Park, is a great way for families and couples to spend a summer evening experiencing the best of both worlds—entertainment and the wonders of the great outdoors. The Movies in the Park series is a great chance to spend some quality time with friends and family without spending a fortune—The Movies in the Park series is just another one of Red Bank’s great events that is absolutely free. Sponsored by the Red Bank Parks Department, Movies in the Park has been very successful in the last few years in drawing large crowds to Riverside Gardens Park and providing fun and free entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. Riverside Gardens Park is located on the Navesink River and has great views of the water and easy access to downtown Red Bank. It is the perfect location for couples to start the night out with a free movie and then afterwards, wander downtown for some great food or live music. It is also a great spot to spend some quality family time before the movie begins. Many families like to arrive early and enjoy a great picnic while watching the sunset over the water. A truly breathtaking experience.

This year, the series will be held on Tuesday nights, starting on June 14th and continuing through August 23rd. The event begins at 7pm with various artists performing children’s music. The movies start at 8:30 pm. This year, families will be treated to some outstanding movies that kids are sure to know and love. All of the movies playing are recent hits for young audiences, but adults are sure to enjoy them as well.

A snack bar is available at the park, however, most families enjoy bringing there own favorite movie snacks. Arriving early to ensure the best spot is a must, and be sure to bring some comfortable chairs or blankets, as these items are not provided in the park.
