Movies in Clark Park will return in 2018 for four Fridays beginning August 10th. This summer, in partnership with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and Friends of Clark Park, UCD will bring four weeks of free outdoor movies to liven up summer nights in West Philadelphia. Beautiful Clark Park (43rd and Chester Ave) will transform into an outdoor amphitheater to showcase a great lineup of films projected on a giant screen for the entire family to enjoy. 

Audience members are invited to bring chairs or blankets for the films, and can enjoy food and dessert offerings from a rotating list of vendors, beginning around 6pm. Additionally, UCD will partner with local businesses to provide extra activities and promotions for the screenings. 



Canceled: Friday, September 28th at 7:15pm: Black Panther

The 9/28 rescheduled screening of Black Panther has been canceled due to wet and muddy conditions at Clark Park. We cannot set up the projector and the screen without risking damage to the park. We’re hoping for better luck and more movie nights next year!
