Summer is Here!

Happy first day of summer!

Like everyone involved with ImageOut, I love movies. However, summer in Rochester is not the best time to be inside a movie theater. I always have a hard time keeping up with new movies in the summer just because I'd rather be outside.

It only took a little bit of looking to find out that Rochesterians don't have to choose between enjoying the warm weather and catching some great stage and screen entertainment. Here are some ideas for this summer, and most of them are free!

The Rochester Community Players present Much Ado About Nothing as this year's Shakespeare at the Highland Bowl production. The show runs July 2 through 17 every evening except Mondays, Thursdays, and the Fourth of July. FREE!

Why no Thursday Shows? Well, that's because RCP switches gears to co-sponsor Movies at the Bowl. Family-friendly movies under the stars play throughout the summer on Thursday nights. FREE!

Highland Park isn't the only place to catch a movie outdoors. You can also catch a free flick at other area parks (Jaws at Ontario Beach Park is a past favorite) through August. The full schedule hasn't been released yet, but you can keep checking the Parks website for updates. FREE!

And if you are dying to keep up with the summer blockbusters, There's always the drive-in! Vintage Drive-in in Avon is only about a 30 minute drive from the city, and you can catch a double-feature of new movies for just $8.
