Again, on a Friday night after work, when we had no plan, why not watch a free movie and eat popcorn with other people in a park. This is a very friendly and safe place to hang around thanks to the City of Portland. On this day (7/12), they had this Movies in the Park event at Colonel Summers Park in East downtown Portland.
How to get there?
It takes about 8 mins drive from downtown Portland. The traffic towards a bridge across Willamette River can get heavy depending on time of a day.
Every summer in Portland Oregon, Portland Parks and Recreation by the City of Portland offer free movie and live music concerts with local music bands. This is a very friendly event and kids would love it.
The movie starts after dusk (it started around 9:30pm). Free concert starts around 6:30pm.
kids playground, basketball courts and baseball field are there.
Food and Drink?
Free popcorn and food carts are available. Everybody is welcome to bring any outside food.
How was the movie?
The movie was Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Of Grindelwald from 2018. The movie was a little more than 2 hours (2 hr and 13 min). This is the second movie of the “Fantastic Beasts” series. The content is about what happened before Harry Potter. Young Dumbledore was in the movie.
They played the DVD version. The movie started after 9:30 and finished around 11:30. It got very cold. Extra blankets would help.
