After the cancellation of the events last year, locals will be thrilled to know that not only is the St. Ann’s Festival returning for the 2021 season – so is Movies Under the Stars. This yearly Hoboken event brings together residents (and visitors) alike to enjoy some of the most popular films out ever made. Mayor Bhalla announced that the favored Movies Under the Stars in Hoboken is happening this summer and will take place in the usual Pier A location as well as 7th and Jackson.
Movies showings will take place Wednesday evenings in June (9PM), July (9PM), and August (8PM). As always, admission is free. Social distance guidelines will be followed.
Pro tip: Be sure to bring a blanket (or two to double up for extra comfort) or a lawn chair. Show up early to snag a good spot – the lawn gets packed quickly. Don’t forget the snacks (and be sure not to leave any wrappers behind!).
The mayor has asked the public for movie recommendations for this year’s lineup. Residents can vote for award-winning movies, classic films, and family favorites here.
You can select up to five films that are broken down into “adult film choices,” “family-friendly films,” and “old classics.”
A few of the movie options across the board include Nomadland, Little Women, Coming 2 America, Soul, Aladdin, Grease, West Side Story, and Roman Holiday. The schedule for the movies and locations will be provided at a later date.
