August is quickly approaching, which means Hoboken’s Movies Under the Stars is nearing its final weeks. Luckily, we just got word that there’s a special new twist coming to the final showings at Pier A Park, located at 100 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken: this free movie program will now also be serving free dinner. Colavita, one of the sponsors of Movies Under the Stars, will be bringing its pizza truck and serving free pizza at the final 3 showings of Movies Under the Stars on July 27th, August 10th, and August 17th. Read on to learn all about Colavita’s Pizza Truck + the free pizza at Pier A Park.

Free Pizza at Movies Under the Stars
On July 18th, Colavita announced that it would be offering free pizza at the final 3 showings of Movies Under the Stars. Colavita is one of the sponsors of the Movies Under the Stars event, and the Colavita Pizza Truck will be setting up camp at Pier A Park prior to the movie to serve free pizza from the truck’s wood-fired oven. The oven heats up to over 800 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning it takes only 2 minutes — or under — to cook. The Margherita pizza is served with crushed tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and extra virgin olive oil.
The Colavita Pizza Truck is planning to serve pizza two hours before each movie and will start breaking down when the movie begins. Pizza will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and 500 – 600 slices will be available at each event.

Movies begin at sundown, though guests are welcome to arrive early on the lawn ahead of time. It’s recommended that movie-goers bring their own blanket or a low-back chair to enjoy the movie and pizza.
Here are the final showings for Movies Under the Stars, which will include Colavita Pizza Truck’s free pizza:
- July 27th at 9PM: West Side Story
- August 10th at 8:30 PM: Sing 2
- August 17th at 8:30PM: Encanto
For those looking for additional outdoor movie fun, Jersey City’s Movies in the Park still has a lot of movies left to screen. Spiderman No Way Home, Tinkerbell, Respect, Encanto, and Even Mice Belong in Heaven are all on the docket for August. We’ve also rounded up outdoor movie events in Essex County, including Zoo-vies at the Turtle Back Zoo, Moonlit Movies in South Orange, and the Montclair Film 2022 Summer series, among others.
And for something extra fun, we recommend a drive-in movie to spark a little nostalgia and take advantage of the windows-rolled-down warm weather.
