This year’s theme: Getting to Know You! Riverside Park’s staff favorites. This film was selected by Park Manager Paul Evans. Pack a picnic, bring a friend and settle in for a night of premiere movies. Open captioned.

Anchors Aweigh:

"Two sailors, one naive, the other experienced in the ways of the world, on liberty in Los Angeles, is the setting for this movie musical."

Summer on the Hudson programming is free to the public. Seating is limited, unreserved, and available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning 1-2 hours before the event. If there is heavy rain at the time of the event, the event will be cancelled. Up to the minute cancelation information will be posted on our twitter @summeronhuhdson and if the event is canceled the Parks calendar website will be updated to reflect that (about 2 hours before the event). No rain dates are scheduled.  No rain dates are scheduled. If attendance reaches maximum capacity management reserves the right to close participation.

The film will begin when it is dark enough to see the image on the screen which is dependent on the sunset, generally around 8:30pm.  Seating will open at 6:30, and is first come first serve and people can reserve chairs for their friends once onsite. We put out chairs (about 250 of them) and they normally fill by 7:30.  People may bring their own chairs and place them behind our chairs on the dark pavers. NO chairs are not allowed in established ground seating sections.  Ground seating is available in front and behind the chair section.  Front ground seating is for blankets/butts on ground (the pier is hard made of pavers) & picnics are welcome if trash is disposed of properly.  Dogs are welcome.There is no seating or standing in the Southern aisle of the pier.
