Sunday Summer Cinema at BAMPFA
June 10–October 14, 2018

Bring Your Lawn Chair & Blanket

BAMPFA, in partnership with the Downtown Berkeley Association (DBA), presents “Dancing in the Streets”, a summer series of free movie matinees on the museum’s massive outdoor LED screen at Addison and Oxford. These movies are on the second Sunday of each month from June to October - perfect for audiences of all ages to enjoy joyous and entertaining dance movies that will have you dancing in the streets. A section of Addison Street between Oxford Street and Shattuck Avenue will be closed to traffic for each screening, where audiences can set up their own lawn chairs or picnic blankets in front of the giant outdoor BAMPFA screen—located just a block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

FREE outside movie event to enjoy with the whole family!

Next movie on Sunday, Aug 12th at 4PM, featuring “Step” (US, 2017) 84 minutes. Praised as one of the most entertaining and heartwarming of recent documentaries, Amanda Lipitz’s Step follows the Lethal Ladies step team from the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, an inner city charter school that helps underserved girls prepare for college. At the center of the film are three seniors, all members of the step team. See trailer here!
