Palace Theatre Announces Free Summer Movie Series

The Palace Theatre in Albany has announced its Summer in the City Movie Series which will begin on July 12. Over the course of the summer, the theatre will host eight free, family-friendly movies for the community to enjoy.

The Palace Theatre began the series in 2015 as a way to give children the opportunity to experience the excitement of the theatre, and fun and safe ways to participate in the arts. Since 2016, the SEFCU has been a proud sponsor of the event. Each show will begin at 1 pm, with educational activities one hour before showtime. 

Since the series began in 2015, over 35,000 people have enjoyed a movie at the Palace Theatre thanks to the Summer in the City Movie Series. This year’s lineup features popular movies with something for everyone to enjoy.

From Sing 2, Raya the Last Dragon, Luca, Space Jam: A New Legacy, and more, the movie offerings are packed with entertainment for all ages. The Palace Theatre is also offering free popcorn for children under 12 for the full movie experience.

On August 30, after the showing of the popular Disney musical Encanto, audiences can enjoy the finale of the series with a special ice cream social – a great way to beat the summer heat. There will be giveaways, activities, and free ice cream courtesy of Stewart’s Shops.

Free tickets are available in advance at the Palace Theatre Box Office or can be reserved online. For the full series schedule, see below.
