The final movie night of Season 2!!!  Special time at 7:30pm

Music lovers unite!  Rotary Park is the place to be this Friday night, Sept 13 as we present West Side Story, sponsored by The Rotary Club of Kingston and the Sunshine Rotary Club.  It’s a grown up night so keep the little ones at home, but teens with parents or adult guardians are more than welcome.  Come sing along with the Jets and the Sharks to a classic American musical at 7:30pm!   Sadly the Gold Hope Duo will be unable to perform due to a scheduling conflict, but we will work to bring them back for Season 3.

Located across from Kingston Point Beach on Delaware Ave. you will find plenty of parking on-street or in the adjacent parking lot.  A special shuttle is arranged from the parking lot on Delaware Ave across from Kingston Point Beach.  It will be making a continual loop to the main pavilion of Rotary Park for seniors and anybody else who needs assistance for the short walk from the parking area to the movie area.  The Kingston Trolley will also be doing a free shuttle loop across the city if you need public transportation.  The trolley will begin running at 6:30pm to accommodate the earlier start time.  The nights are also getting chilly so make sure to dress for the weather.

Rotary Park is another hidden gem of the Kingston Park system. The land of Kingston Point Park has a long and intriguing history, beginning in 1897, Kingston Point has been a “must see” for visitors for over 100 years, with its beautiful views of the Hudson River, Rhinecliff and the surrounding natural areas, Kingston Point Park is an oasis in our urban city. Over the years, Kingston Point has morphed from it’s early days as an amusement park to a place of solitude and beauty. The Kingston Rotary Club led the way in the 1980′s to restore this beautiful park in order to provide a new generation of visitors with a enjoyable visit. Kingston Point has over 87 acres of open space and Kingston recently renamed a 2 acre portion of the park as Rotary Park at Kingston Point in honor of the Kingston Rotary’s ongoing commitment to the park.

We’ll see YOU at the Movies!
