A Look At the Free Summer Movie Series for 2019 at State Theatre New Jersey

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- State Theatre New Jersey is bringing back its popular Free Summer Movies Series for 2019. This year's lineup includes Captain America, The First Avenger on July 3, Finding Nemo on July 9, Ernest & Celestine on July 16, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on July 23, Mary Poppins Returns on July 30, and Incredibles 2 on August 6.

Showings for Finding NemoErnest & CelestineSpider-Man: Into the Spider-VerseMary Poppins Returns, and Incredibles 2 will be at 10:30am and 7:00pm. Captain America, The First Avenger is part of New Brunswick’s Independence Day celebration. There will be a single showing at 6:30pm. After the movie, the audience can enjoy free fireworks and more at Boyd Park, on Route 18 north in New Brunswick. 

The entire series is free of charge to the community, offering young people the chance to enjoy these films, whether with their families, summer camps, or other groups. The movies will be shown at the historic State Theatre New Jersey, a 1921 movie palace that has become one of New Jersey’s premier venues for live performance. Moviegoers will enjoy an unparalleled experience. The State Theatre’s state-of-the-art HD digital cinema projection system 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.

Lian Farrer, State Theatre New Jersey’s Vice President of Education & Community Engagement, remembers the time before multiplex cinemas replaced the classic movie palaces with theaters divided up into a dozen or more smaller, unadorned spaces. “At over 1,850 seats, the State Theatre is more than six times as big as the average movie theater today,” she said. “With our Free Summer Movies, kids and their families get to experience some of the great films the way movies were intended to be seen. Nothing can compare to seeing a movie in a venue like ours. Plus, the tickets are free! We want welcome everyone to our beautiful venue.”

The Free Summer Movie Series reflects the State Theatre’s mission to enrich the lives of people from diverse backgrounds through the very best in arts and entertainment, with a particular emphasis on serving families in our New Brunswick community. Other programs include: a family music and storytelling series called “Milk and Cookies,” Autism-Friendly Relaxed Performances specially designed for audiences on the autism spectrum, and an annual community poetry residency. These programs are offered free of charge or at very low cost to make them accessible to all.
