The idea behind Summer Movie Nights is simple: Connect C-U residents with each other and with our community’s physical space by screening movies outdoors in downtown Urbana. Now in its third year, the Summer Movie Nights series is organized by Urbanalove, a group of individuals who live and work in Urbana and who are dedicated to helping the downtown area fulfill its full potential.
Summer Movie Nights are free and family-friendly, designed for community members of all ages and interests. In the past, we’ve preceded the feature presentation with film shorts, performances by local bands, and community bike rides. This year we’re timing our screenings to coincide with different community events.
(And in case you were wondering, food trucks will be on site to satisfy your gluttonous desires.)

Summer Movie Nights wouldn’t exist without help from our sponsors: Urbana Free Library, H2O Salon, First Federal, City of Urbana, Busey, Dixon Graphics, Urbana’s Market at the Square, Common Ground Food Co-op, Siam Terrace, and Neutral Cycle.
And don’t forget, it’s always a good idea to bring your own chairs. See you Saturday!
