State Theatre Announces Free Movies Throughout Summer of 2016

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- This summer the State Theatre is proud to announce the return of the Free Summer Movies Series, sponsored by Boraie Development and The Provident Bank Foundation. Movies featured in the series include Frozen on July 12, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial on July 19, Despicable Me 2 on July 26, Babe on August 2, Monsters University on August 9, and Aladdin on August 16. Showings for each movie will be at 10:30am and 7:00pm showing. Tickets are FREE.

All six movies are free of charge to the community, offering young people the chance to enjoy their favorite films with their families, summer camps, and other groups in the opulent surroundings of the State Theatre, a historic 1921 movie palace that has become one of New Jersey’s preeminent venues for live performance.

“We are proud to once again sponsor this wonderful series, giving local families and young people the chance to see movies for free in this remarkable historic venue,” commented Hiam Boraie, Vice President of Boraie Development.

Jane Kurek, Executive Director of The Provident Bank Foundation, sponsor of the State Theatre’s Community Access Initiative, commented, “We are thrilled to help make it possible for families of all backgrounds to have these exciting State Theatre experiences free of charge this summer.”

“We are so happy to bring back the summer movie series this year with an expanded lineup of six films,” added Anna Marie Gewirtz, State Theatre Vice President of Development & Strategic Partnerships. “As part of our mission we are committed to presenting affordable family-friendly programming. Our year-round Community Access Initiative invites our community to enjoy a variety of free events at the State Theatre. With the generosity of Boraie Development and The Provident Bank Foundation, we will reach a larger number of families this summer—around 7,500 people.”



 


Moviegoers will enjoy an unparalleled experience, beginning with the State Theatre’s state-of-the-art HD digital cinema projection system, which includes a 46’ Stewart film screen, a Barco projector, and digital surround sound. In the 1,850-seat restored theater, audiences can sit downstairs or enjoy the view from up in the balcony, just as in the glory days of Hollywood.
