What is Movies on Monroe?
Movies on Monroe, formerly Movies in the Park, is the premier outdoor film series in Grand Rapids. DGRI and partners present films - free of charge - on a giant video wall along the banks of the Grand River every other Friday from June thru August. Guests are invited to treat the evening like a picnic and bring your own blanket, chairs, beer, wine and snacks for a special night under the stars. Gates open at 6:00 PM. Pre-movie entertainment begins at 6:30 PM. First film starts at 7: 30 PM followed by an additional feature shortly after the first ends. - downtowngr.org
PyLadies Grand Rapids was invited to participate in the Movies on Monroe event for Friday, August 3rd. The movies playing for this event will be Shrek and Hidden Figures, as such the organizers thought it would be a great event to promote women in tech.
PyLadies Grand Rapids, along with other local organizations, will have a booth to promote our community and show support for any potential future programmers during the event.
So we’d like to invite you to join us at the event to show your support, or just come for the great movies!
Make sure to come say hi to us at our booth! 👋
