Summer at the Movies

Just like that long-awaited sequel, Hoboken Grace is back at the movies this summer – Movies Under the Stars, that is.

A group will be handing out popcorn at the city’s free movie screening at Pier A each Wednesday night. The series kicked off last night with a showing of Young Frankenstein.

Hoboken Grace began serving popcorn at the event last year, handing out 250 to 500 bags each night. It was such a crowd pleaser that we’re doing it again this year.

Like Simple Service, it’s an easy – not to mention fun — way to love and support our community.

“I love when people come up and ask, ‘How much?’ and we tell them ‘It’s free,’” Anthony said in a blog post last year. “They’re completely shocked. When they ask, ‘Why free?’ it’s a great opportunity to tell them about Hoboken Grace and how we strive to love our community any way we can.”

The group handing out popcorn might be an entire dinner group one week, or a contingent of individual volunteers available that night. If you’re interested in helping out, email Anthony at with the Wednesday night dates you’re available.

Movies start at 9 p.m. in June and July and 8 p.m. in August. You can find more information about the event and each film on the city’s website.
