‘Screening Under The Stars’ On Penn’s Landing

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – ‘Tis the season for Screening Under the Stars. It is a Philadelphia summer tradition that draws thousands of people to The Great Plaza on Penn’s Landing to see fantastic movies under a cooler summer sky.

Jodie Milkman, Vice President of Programming and Marketing for the Delaware Riverfront Corporation, explains what you can expect to see for free every Thursday night.

“These large scale films are shown right on the river stage at Great Plaza, which is Columbus Boulevard on Chestnut Street. We’re kicking off on July 7th with “127 Hours” then we’re showing “The Kings Speech,” “The Social Network,”  “Eat Pray Love,” “The Green Hornet,”  Michael Jackson’s “This Is It,” The Twilight Saga, “The Eclipse” and we end with “Despicable Me.”

You can hear Michelle Durham’s interview with Jodi Milkman in this CBS Philly ‘At Your Leisure’ podcast…

Milkman says it’s a spectacular way to view a movie.

“You can bring a picnic. You can wheel your kids up in their strollers. You can just sit back and chill under the stars.”
