Movies in the Park


North Straub Park, 350 Bay Shore Drive NE

During the month of October St. Petersburg Preservation presents “Movies in the Park” at North Straub Park every Thursday night.

Live music starts at 6 p.m., preluding a movie that begins at nightfall. People are welcome to arrive early with a blanket and picnic or purchase food from vendors.

Only a five minute drive from USF St. Petersburg, these outdoor flicks provide some relaxing and, most importantly, free entertainment that students can enjoy.
