[caption id=”attachment_6997” align=”alignleft” width=”50” caption=”Lauren Clay”][/caption]

If you’re itching for a European vacation but can’t make it happen, whet your jet-setting appetite with a free outdoor screening of Midnight in Paris this weekend on Saturday, August 11th in Rittenhouse Square. This event, which is part of the Moonlit Movie Screening program, is the perfect opportunity to picnic and take in the sites of one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful parks. The movie will start at 8:30, but be sure to get there early to snag a good spot for your picnic blanket.

For those unfamiliar with writer-director Woody Allen’s film (which won Allen an Academy Award for best writing for an original screenplay and was nominated for the prestigious best picture award), here’s a brief synopsis: An engaged couple (portrayed by Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams) travels to Paris for business, and where Wilson finds inspiration and falls in love with the City of Lights, before finding a taxi cabi that takes him back to the 1920s. Being in the most romantic city in the world forces the couple to confront their differing views on a perfect life; peppered with portrayals of such famed figures as Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí, this film is perfect for romantics and history buffs alike. Midnight in Paris also stars Alison Pill, Kathy Bates, Tom Hiddleston, Marion Cotillard, Adrien Brody and Kurt Fuller.

To keep your stomach from growling during the film, Rouge will be dishing out classic movie fare—including lemonade, popcorn and hot dogs—from a curbside booth on 18th street outside of the restaurant. Shake Shack is also getting in on the action—they’ll be serving free frozen custard to Moonlit Movie attendees from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Philadelphia Horticulture Society’s Pop-Up Garden (located across the street from Rittenhouse Square at 19th and Walnut).

The evening is being hosted by Uwishunu, along with The Friends of Rittenhouse Square, the Philadelphia Film Society and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. For more information, check out

So spread the word about this free event and get ready to travel to Paris for the evening. Au revoir!

Written and directed by Angelina Jolie, IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY is set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War in the ‘90s. This bold new film illustrates the consequences of the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken with conflict. IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY features a completely local cast, most of whom were children of the war. The film was simultaneously shot in English and their native language. During the time of the war the language spoken was Serbo-Croatian and is now referred to as BHS. FilmDistrict will release the English language version on Dec. 23, and it opens in Philadelphia on January 6.
