Awesome 80s Movies at Liberty Lands in Northern Liberties

One of the best things about living in Philadelphia in the summertime's the large number of free outdoor events taking place all over the city. Philly renters on a budget are sure to appreciate the price point, as each day brings a new outdoor event to one of the city's neighborhoods. One of several outdoor movie series taking place across Philly, The Awesome Fest's "Awesome 80's Movies on The Awesome Screen!" might be, well, the most awesome.

Since July, the festival's been beaming classic movies onto an outdoor screen in the Liberty Lands park in Northern Liberties. Each Thursday through August 30th, the fest returns to this cute NoLibs park with another 1980s classic. Screenings begin at 9 p.m., which means ths sun's set and the breeze of the Delaware River helps push away Philly's sometimes sweltering heat. Even if you rent an apartment in a Philly neighborhood that's not Northern Liberties, SEPTA makes it easy to get to the park with the Girard and Spring Garden MFL stops just a few blocks away.

"Awesome 80's Movies" has a few more showings left this summer: August 9th is Top Gun; August 16th, Predator; August 23rd, Beetlejuice; and August 30th, The Wizard. Whether you live in Northern Liberties or elsewhere in Philly, it's a fun (and free!) event. Click here to learn more about the "Awesome 80's Movies" outdoor movie series.
