SOMERVILLE, N.J., July 7, 2017—This summer, grab your favorite treats and head out to Downtown Somerville to make family memories — or enjoy a romantic date night — watching movies under the stars.

The popular Somerville Starlit Cinema Series turns Division Street in the heart of town into an outdoor theater featuring classics, comedies, and even an Academy Award winner every Thursday night from July 13 to August 17. Shows are appropriate for all ages and start at 8:30 p.m.

Now in its sixth year, the Starlit Cinema Series has become a favorite summer destination for area residents, who vote annually for the films they wish to see. Movies are projected on a giant screen with cinema-quality digital projection and a state-of-the-art sound system. Chairs are provided or visitors can bring their own. 

Rain dates, if needed, will be scheduled in late August. Cancellations will be announced on the Downtown Somerville Alliance Facebook page.

With close to 50 restaurants and eateries in the downtown area catering to every palate, families and couples can create their own “dinner-and-a-show” night — or grab some snacks to munch on during the screening.
