Spending summer nights outside in the Hudson Valley is something I think we should all enjoy as much as possible and if you are like me and always looking for a fun way to enjoy the outdoors in Poughkeepsie, we've found something you might want to try out.


Movie Nights in Arlington

The night sky in the Hudson Valley is the perfect backdrop for all of us to watch a movie. Now not just any movie, we're talking some of the classics, and the folks at the Poughkeepsie Library and the Arlington Business Improvement District have scheduled dates this summer/fall for us to rewatch or watch for the first time some of the best movies ever! Movie nights in Arlington will take place on Fridays at Garden Art Space at 44 Raymond Ave in Poughkeepsie.


What Classic Movies Will Be Showing?

Starting on Friday night July 8th everyone is invited to grab a blanket, chairs, and snacks and get ready to watch some of the best classic movies under the stars. The first movie of the summer will be Jumanji on July 8th. It'll be followed by the Goonies on August 12th. Guests are invited to come early each night to enjoy preshow activities including arts and crafts, music, family activities, and more.
